Valledupar

The birthplace of vallenato

You are here

 

The Park of Coins, which honors eight vallenato composers born here, is located in Patillal, half an hour north of Valledupar. In this outdoor statuary, the faces of teachers such as Freddy Molina and Rafael Escalona decorate coins of about three feet in diameter; the other side of each coin features the lyrics to a song by that artist.

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES

 

Unforgettable experiences in Valledupar include bathing in rivers, walking in parks, getting close to indigenous cultures, and seeing how children learn to play vallenato music.
