Guatape

Guatapé’s most defining feature (aside from the lake) is its zócalos. Zócalos are decorative, three-dimensional designs trimming the bottom halves of most of the houses and businesses in town. I found them a little tacky and gimmicky at first until I realized they weren’t just for tourists’ enjoyment. The further we ventured into town, the more the zócalos grew on me and drew me to take pictures of their colorful fronts.
