This city, like most of South America, was conquered by Spanish settlers, ruling in its principles with tribes of hunters and gatherers, over the years the Spanish rule caused them to disappear little by little.
In the following years, after several resistance from the settlers towards the Spanish conquerors, they managed to obtain a better quality of life, dictating the right to improve their services for their habitat and food, this small city grew slowly and gradually due to the lack of constructions for its development, bridges for the most part. It was not until 1846 that the president at that time managed to build the first bridge over a river that would serve to expand his trade.
Currently Medellín is one of the first metropolitan cities in Colombia, in which cultural and artistic events proliferate, recognized for its mass transportation system.
