We are working hard to create a retreat that will offer the perfect setting for your wellness program. New Life Penol is located in Antioquia in the northwestern part of Colombia, with two-thirds of it’s area in the Andean Region. It is surrounded by natural beauty and is close to the famous rock of Guatape. Our goal is to open at the end of 2022.
The Rock of Guatape (El Peñón de Guatape) is a special landmark in Colombia and is located in the town and municipality of Guatape, Antioquia. It is also known as The Stone of El Peñol, or simply La Piedra or El Peñol ( La Piedra del Peñol).
The town of El Peñol, which borders Guatape, has historically claimed the rock as its own; this has led to different names for the site.
The landform is a granitic rock remnant that has resisted weathering and erosion, likely a result of being less fractured than the surrounding bedrock. Peñón de Guatape is an outcrop of the Antioquia Batholith and towers up to 200 meters (656 feet) above its base. Visitors can scale the rock via the stone stairs of 649 steps carved into on side.
Near the rock base, there are food and market stalls for shopping and about halfway up the steps there is a shrine to the Virgin Mary. The summit contains a three-story viewpoint tower offering beautiful views.
