Pácora

Nestled between the Colombian Pueblos de Patrimonio of Salamina and Aguadas is the small, quiet town of Pácora. There’s nothing of interest there, but it’s part of the UNESCO World Heritage listing for the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia.

 

Plaza

The main plaza has some trees, an interesting sculpture, and a statue of Simón Bolívar.

The church, Iglesia de San José, doesn’t look like the other typical churches of the region. It has a more renaissance style to it.

Getting There

If traveling between Salamina (1 ½ hours, COP$12,000) and Aguadas (30 minutes, COP$5,000), all buses will make a stop in the main plaza. It’s also reached from Manizales via Salamina in 4 ½ hours. The road from Salamina is horrible while the road from Aguadas is smooth.
