Quimbaya Gold Museum. Located to the north of the city, it offers visitors an excellent assembly of its archaeological collection corresponding to the pre-Hispanic area of the Middle Cauca. The Museum, designed by the architect Rogelio Salmona, is the National Architecture Prize of the 1986-87 Biennial and has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest of the Nation.
Mirador de la 19 o de la Secreta, The Great Ecological Park of La Secreta, constituted by the Armenian geological fault, goes from the 18th race to the Quindío river, crossing the city from the south to the center. It is a reserve of fauna and flora where the municipal area and the Zoonoses Center operate.
Suspension bridge Don Nicolás. One of the most beautiful suspension bridges of Quindío is Don Nicolás, on the Quindío River, on the old route of the 14th race of Armenia in a north-south direction, below the Uribe park. This bridge was initially built by neighbors, including Don Vespasiano Jaramillo and Don Luis Hoyos. They made a bridge with steel cables and boards of native trees that was replaced by a larger one designed by the German engineer Guillermo Ledher, by mandate of the government of Caldas. This is the same bridge that, renovated and adjusted, communicates today with Calarcá Armenia and retains the name of Don Nicolás.
Canyoning. It is a local sculptural technique on earth that looks out onto a space from a ravine lookout, created by a worker from the municipality, Efrén Fernández Barón, with great qualities and an enormous sculptural vocation. In this ravine, the artist, with palin and regatón in hands, is making figures, almost all characteristics of the pre-Columbian cultures, which he then covers with cement and sand passed by water. What was once an indigenous form of expression is today an important landmark of urban art in Armenia. Today you can see three large works of this nature in Armenia, because seven more that were in different parts of the city have disappeared for different reasons. The first is at the entrance to the city in the east, María Cristina neighborhood. It is called Thinking Dialogues. They are figures of pre-Columbian men and women welcoming and saying goodbye to the people. But at the time they have something cosmic, like the third eye, and a deep relationship with love. The second one is the Alegoría al agua, located on Avenida Bolívar, in the ravine of the Regivit electric station. There are mountains there where the water goes down, a human figure that symbolizes the god Mountain, an Indian who collects the water in a banana leaf, a peasant who does the same but in a guadua and the trunk and the ax, symbols of the city, surrounded by the modern aqueduct. And the third sculpture is on Avenida Ancízar López López, it is an allegory to Armenia, where pre-Columbian figures, masks, eagle plumes, poporos, alligators, a silhouette of the cathedral church of the city and what the author also appear it calls a cosmic cry, given by a man in defense of the earth. The sculptor, Efrén Fernández Barón, works tirelessly to leave the city a large amount of works of this type, but also prepares a school of Canyoning so that the technique does not disappear.
Train station. The old railway station was built between 1927 and 1930 to house the administration, archives, statistics, offices and warehouses of the National Railways of Colombia, Ferrocarril del Pacífico, branches Armenia-Cali-Buenaventura and Armenia-Nacederos. It is preserved in 90% of its original construction. In its main rooms the capitals, the doors and windows constructed in wrought iron stand out. The decoration of its floors, especially in the main entrance, has an allegory of the republican era, as well as the two great central doors, also of iron with rivets. The terrace is adorned in its corners with concrete snails and plaster.
The building was declared by the National Council of Monuments as National Heritage in the year of 1989. It is made in a neoclassical style of the republican period and conserves some gargoyles that represent animals. It no longer provides the service of a railway station, but rather a public library and the headquarters of some municipal government offices. Also called Metropolitan Cultural Center The Station, is one of the most symbolic buildings of Armenia for its republican style and the good state of the structure. This work is located in Carrera 19A No. 29-30Get the full listing »
