Peñón de Guatapé, also known as El Peñol, is a giant rock formation located in Antioquia, Colombia. It’s a popular tourist destination due to its geology, stunning views, and rich history. But perhaps most famously, it’s known for its staircase of over 700 steps, which must be climbed to reach the top for panoramic views.
One of the most exciting events held at Peñón de Guatapé is the downhill race. Every year, thrill-seekers gather to race down the winding roads of the town and experience an adrenaline rush like no other. Needless to say, so not try this unless you’re a professional biker (and even then, you probably shouldn’t try it).
