Vida Augusta

This arts centre features studios, galleries and small shops, and is the place to head for locally made gifts. Browse the Sala Augusta where local artists exhibit works that are often narrated in the brutal vein of Colombian history, before heading to the studios where you can watch (or participate in) workshops. Shop for home goods, such as patterned pillows and coasters, then head to the second floor to pick up handmade soaps and salves at Anima Terra.
