Santuario, Risaralda, Colombia

I wonder if I'll ever manage to get a written and stamped postcard from Colombia... This one was sent from the US. I just love the colours here, such a lovely-looking place!

This is Calle Rial in Santuario, a town and municipality in the Department of Risaralda, Colombia.

Risaralda Department is located in the western central region of the country and part of the Paisa Region. Its capital is Pereira. It was divided from the department of Caldas in 1966. Risaralda is very well known for the high quality of its coffee, and a booming industry: clothes, food, trading of goods, and services.

The territory is very mountainous and has many kinds of climates in a very small area. Its proximity to harbours such as Buenaventura on the Pacific Ocean and to the biggest cities in Colombia – Bogotá, Cali, Medellín – makes it a fast-growing economic centre.
