Three hours southwest of Medellín, the small town in Jericó, Antioquia is a religious tourism destination because it’s the birthplace of Colombia’s only saint, Saint Laura. This didn’t interest Chris and me much, seeing as our only religious activity is celebrating Christmas. We visited for different reasons… but ended up discovering religion in Jericó nevertheless. A different religion: Food.
Jericó’s almighty artisanal foods and nice restaurants made us true believers.
It’s very likely that this guide to the many artisanal treats and the best restaurants in Jericó will convince you to make a pilgrimage there too.
