I loved the tile decor on the buildings--so colorful and festive. The tour of the ceramic shops and how the pots are made was very interesting.

A well hand crafted town of Antioqua, where time has instilled artisans of earthenware, botanica, and tantalizing spices and flavours to the plate. El Carmen de Viboral is thriving in life.
