Antioquia is one of the prettiest and wealthiest regions in Colombia.

The department is located in central-west Colombia and bordered in the north by the Caribbean Sea and the departments of Córdoba, Sucre and Bolívar. It is bordered by the departments of Risaralda and Caldas in the south, by Chocó in the west and by Boyacá and Santander in the east. Its capital is Medellín.

The central and western cordilleras (mountain ranges) cross the department. This fertile area is ideal for raising livestock and for growing bananas and coffee beans, which are the two major agricultural productions in the country, as well as a wide variety of crops such as rice, yucca, sorghum, beans, sugar cane and cacao. The area is also rich in bauxite and gold deposits.

Industry, commerce, mining and agriculture are the main sources of income.

The department has an area of 6,612 square kilometers. There are more than 5.5 million people living in this region. Two-thirds of the population live in urban areas.
