The City of Eternal Spring

Situated in a narrow valley, Medellin's skyline reaches for the heavens, setting high-rise apartment and office buildings against a backdrop of jagged peaks in every direction. Its pleasant climate gives the city its nickname – the City of Eternal Spring.  With infrastructure projects that are bringing architecturally exciting libraries and parks to impoverished neighborhoods, and its creative methods of transportation, Medellín is one of the most progressive cities in Latin America.
