Medellin - Considered by many as the best city in Colombia. Medellin is home to beautiful women, the famous yearly "Flower Festival" in August and the first (and still only) metro system in the country: "Metro de Medellin". Home City of Juanes, Fernando Botero and René Higuita. The metropolitan area is surrounded by many small towns which have become virtual suburbs of the city. These include Envigado, Itaguí, Sabaneta and Caldas (south); Bello, Copacabana and Girardota (north). The spread of the city east and west is limited by topography.
