There are reviews of this attraction listed under Little City (El Pueblito) and Cerro Nutibara which refer to the same place, the correct name being Pueblito Paisa, Cerro Nutibara being the hill on which it stands. The Lonely Planet guide description is "a kitschy miniature version of a typical Antioquian township" which I cannot better. It is just a few buildings and a tiny church round three sides of a small square full of food and nick-nack stalls. On the fourth side is the City Museum, the most interesting part of the site, which is quite small and, on our visit, almost entirely given over to an exhibition of pictures of Medellin by Juan Fernando Ospina, a clearly highly talented photographer. There are views over the city from the neighbouring terrace, but as other reviewers have noted Medellin is not the most picturesque of cities.There is apparently a sculpture park on the slopes of Cerro Nutibara but we did not investigate this.
As far as access is concerned, we thought from the map it would be a reasonable walk from the Exposiciones Metro station, which was a mistake. My adult son has good Spanish and was able to ask directions but although people were very helpful our way was barred by one of Medellin's many super-roundabouts, a junction of a number of fast multi-lane roads with no apparent pedestrian way across. In desperation we hailed a taxi and were glad, in the event, we did so as when we got there we realised the Cerro Nutibara would have been a steep climb on foot. If you want to go,get a taxi but don't make it a priority!
