Ansermanuevo, sewing coffee
After a lot of movings, Ansermanuevo stands between the mountainous chain of the western mountain range and the northern Valley of Valle del Cauca. In its blood, this municipality carries with roots from other departments of Colombia, such as Antioquia and Caldas. Over there and also in this lands grows coffee, plantain, and sugarcane. However, Ansermanuevo is known by its delicate and beautiful embroidery, besides of being one of the heritage towns of Colombia, since it is part of the Coffee Cultural Landscape (PCC), declared by UNESCO in 2011 as World Heritage.
The art of embroidery has been a tradition in the town. It was the craft that replaced the farmers work when the pests ruined most of the coffee plantations, between the 80’s and the 90’s. This is the reason why most of the attractions over there are centered on the people, their stories and their fine clothes.
This land is located in the northern valley, is also one of the favorite places for the wind and ecotourism lovers. Paragliding, descending through the canyons of its rivers and spending a night with the silence of nature in Wayra Ecoaventura Park, must be one of the activities included in the "check list" of Ansermanuevo.
