    I liked it but some may feel it is a 'tourist trap'.
    I really liked this. Some may feel it is a 'tourist trap'. This is basically a replica of a traditional Antioquia town. I loved the colours of the buildings, the views and and the atmosphere. Also, a great place to purchase quality handicrafts or souvenirs. There are a few eateries as well and street vendors. Just take an uber. Maybe a 10 minute ride if you are staying in El Poblado.

    Nice place!
    It was a amazing experience. The view at the city was very nice and you can see the city. The site offers good foods and the museum was very interesting. The place is clean and well cared for, it is comfortable and you can buy different memories.

    Not impressed
    It’s a cute place but there isn’t much to do asides from the view (which you can get from other points of the city) and the food. I spent a couple of hours on my own and wasn’t impressed. Wouldn’t say it’s a must, but you can check it out if you have the time and wanna buy souvenirs

    Nice enough but wouldn't make a special visit
    Nice to visit as part of a city tour but wouldn't go out of my way. Cute and pretty but small and very touristy. Situated in a nice green area. Views of the city rather obscured by trees

    Unimpressive tourist trap
    It's a tiny, staged "neighborhood" for tourists. If you're nearby, it might stop for 10 minutes to snap a few pics, but only if you have time on your hands, and go early in the morning before all the tours. It's not worth going out of your way for, nor buying a tour at any price. It's a row of a few brightly painted buildings. The rest of the area contains souvenir shops and food/ drink stands. You can walk down the hill on the backside of the Pueblo on a meh walking trail through the trees with meh Modern art sculptures along the trail. The trail leads down to a highway. Nothing of interest is nearby. Wear repellant if you decide to walk the trail. If you want to see a pretty little town, take an Uber or the metro about 25 minutes south to Envigado or an Uber or metro north to Bello. The churches in both places are beautiful. For a cobblestone small town experience with a fantastic hilltop hike with a view, I recommend Concepción, though it is more difficult to reach - a 2hr drive or a 3hr bus ride in each direction. You will not find an Uber or taxi willing to drive the steep mountainous roads.

    nice views of the city from here
    it's a nice place to spend a bit of time (not too much). The setting is beautiful with some great overlooks of the city. It was a little strange to me (but I guess I need to think about the name) that there are so many competing little restaurants that seem to have pretty much the same menu. I was glad to have found a chicken salad offered at the restaurant in the center of this area. It was a nice break.

"El pueblito paisa" is an amazing place located at "el Cerro Nutibara" in Medellin, Antioquia.It is a replic of a typic town in Antioquia of the XX century, with many colors and very good people. It was built on March 3rd, 1978. To go there, you only have to take the metro in exposiciones station, walk or take a transport, is very easy! The good new is that the entry is free! In my opion, the food there is very expensive, so if you want to have lunch or eat something, you have to bring money. Also, there are stores where you can find and buy handicrafts My experience there was ecstatic and exciting. I really recommend this place to someone who want to know all Antioquia in one place! 🤗🤩.

Even if this place wasn't undergoing noisy construction with heavy equipment and hot tar, it would still suck. Nothing to see or do, just food stalls.
Taxis unable to reach the top due to road closure.
As of Feb 17, 2020... don't bother.

This was a very interesting place to visit if you enjoy history. Pueblo Paisa is a replica of a traditional Antiquia town from around the time of the early 1900's and before.

The replica is placed on the top of Cerro Nutibara which is quite a climb on foot but it was well worth the breathlessness to see the incredible views from this spot.

I visited Museo de Ciudad while I was there and photographed all the displays with my iPhone so I could use the translator to understand the exhibits.

The history of Medellín is rich and this museum helped me to get a grasp of the pride the people have for their city.

Don't forget to have a meal while you are there and sample the local cuisine. I think I could have written a review on that topic alone as the food was amazing.

We enjoyed the view point but we're a bit overwhelmed by the venders and construction at the top. We tried to hike down the mountain, there were quite a few beautiful trails, but a local guy stopped us and told us it isn't safe due to muggers. Not sure if it's true or not but figured we wouldn't risk it. We were already about halfway down so we decided to turn around and head back up.

Pueblito Paisa is located in Medellin.
It is a beautiful place, it lasted 4 days and I enjoyed it a lot,
The last time I went was in January of this year and it was really great
On the days that I was there I visited the chapel and ate a paisa tray and I liked it a lot ^^ I also enjoyed when I went to the houses where crafts are exhibited.
I liked this trip too much since I got to know different things and at the same time enjoyed with my family.

Great 360 views of Medellin from the top. You can walk up the road which will take longer but is less steep, or up the paths through the hills, but parts of those are really steep. Either way it’s not a long walk to the top, or you can get a cab up there, there’s a taxi rank at the top and bottom. Seen other reviews saying it’s full of tourists and that there are muggers working there - when we went it was largely full of Colombians and there was absolutely nothing to suggest we were in any danger of being robbed
