The most colourful town in the world - Guatapé

  • guatape5

    A motley of colours is splashed across the streets of Guatape in Colombia. Located on the shores of an artificial lake, Guatapé adorns paintings and fresco along the walls of its traditional homes. The seed of colour was planted here and slowly spread across the town like an epidemic. The illustrations are thought of as stories from their everyday life involving animals and people. The entire town is decked up in beautiful colours making it look like an artist’s masterpiece.

    Decorated frescoes and colourful balconies add cheer to this small town in Colombia
