Upon arriving at the shore, in spite of a long walk, there is not a single participant who wishes to sit down and rest. They are surrounded by a unique landscape and a tranquility that is not felt in the city. Just past the river it is easy to find the Piedras Marcadas, cultural and archaeological heritage of Risaralda. After touring the place and taking the respective photos with the different shades of green that the landscape offers, more than one sits down to enjoy a well-deserved snack.
