Church of the Immaculate Conception

The most imposing building in El Jardín is the Church of the Immaculate Conception, a Minor basilica that was erected between 1918 and 1942. It is renowned for its half-Gothic style and for having been built with hand carved stones that parishioners brought from a quarry as penance for their sins. Panoramic views of the township and surrounding mountains can be enjoyed from its bell tower.


Some of the highlightsof this town in southwestern Antioquia include walking through the main park in El Jardín, entering the Basilica, and trying delicacies like trout and traditional sweets.
