The Streets of Santa Fe

Santa Fe de Antioquia's cobbled streets and colonial homes haven't changed much since the town was founded in the 16th century. On a Thursday afternoon, the streets had more horses and bicycles than trucks and cars. The town's main square is adorned with fountains and statutes and stands selling hats, sunglasses and sweets made from tamarindo, a bittersweet fruit popular in the region.

I found these horses tied up outside a hardware shop. Most likely they belonged to farmers coming into town to shop.

As night falls, the orange street lamps cast an almost old-world glow on the homes.
