Medellín is the second largest, and most progressive city in Colombia. The home of orchids, parks and tropical birds, Medellin lies cradled in the Aburra Valley, bisected by the Medellin River which runs North and South. There are signs of urban development within the city of Medellín, particularly with the construction of new skycrapers, specially in the south of the city. In fact, Medellín is outpacing all other major Colombian cities in the construction and proposed development of new high-rises.
