Colombia’s coffee region spans across several of the country’s provinces and comprises an area of nearly 350,000 hectares. The region is home to picturesque landscapes, diverse plant and animal life, as well as a number of cultural and educational attractions. The beautiful scenery of lush, mountainous landscapes and coffee plantations, coupled with the traditional architecture of terracotta-roofed farm houses, led UNESCO to add the area to its list of World Heritage Sites in 2011.
