Guadalajara de Buga, Valle de Cauca is one of oldest towns in Colombia.  It is known for it’s famous Basilica del Señor de los Milagros, cattle industry and the crash of American Airlines Flight 965, the highest death toll caused by an airplane crash in Colombia. The town receives 3 million pilgrims a year visiting it’s basilica. After parking in a close-by secure lot we walked around for about two hours in the colonial center in overcast and rainy weather and didn’t felt like we need more time to spend around here. The basilica is surrounded by religious stores where one can buy all imaginable objects related to Christianity. There are some nicely renovated colonial buildings and some excellent low cost wood fire baked cheese arepa in town, Blaze can testify about that. While only 53 km from Palmira the vibe of the town is quite different, being loaded with tourists even on a weekday.
