Coffee, a product from Africa which came to this region of central Colombia in the early twentieth century and spread across the mountains, is a symbol of Manizales culture, the capital of the department of Caldas. The rugged geography of the surrounding area is reflected in the city’s steep streets, from where you can see the peak of Nevado del Ruiz volcano.
