Filandia is probably the place where the basis of the Antioquenian colonization has been better preserved.
Its carved wooden balconies are famous and its María Inmaculada church is known because it was first constructed in bahareque (small wood covered by earth) and later covered with metal sheeting.
In 1988, a keen, demanding jury declared Filandia the prettiest town in the department of Quindío. By all means, visitors should go to the Filandia observation tower to see municipalities in four departments: Valle, Quindío, Risaralda, and Caldas.
