HISTORY OF THE PEÑOL STONE.

The Peñol rock, or the Guatapé rock as it is also known, is one of the most spectacular places in eastern Antioquia. There are many reasons why it is worth talking about this fantastic place full of beauty and mystery. So let’s talk about the history of the peñol stone and its characteristics.

Theories Regarding the Origin of the Peñol Stone.

What Is La Piedra Del Peñol?

The Guatapé Rock or Piedra del Peñol is a monolith (rock of a single element) 220 meters high. In addition, it has a volume of 22,000,000 m3, a perimeter of 770 meters, and is 2137 meters above sea level.

It is composed of quartz, feldspar, granite and mica, among other mineral components. This makes this stone one of the most outstanding and undoubtedly one of the most fascinating in America.

History of Peñón de Guatapé.

The first thing to recognize is that this stone was of natural origin, which means that we are not talking strictly about its formation. But we will talk about different aspects throughout the story.

Since pre-Hispanic times, this stone has played an important role, as it was part of different worship
was part of different cults of adoration
worships performed by the indigenous people that inhabited this region. These Indians worshiped nature, possibly the stone was a symbol of worship or an object worshiped by them.

In the mid-twentieth century, the Peñol stone was not the most desirable place for the inhabitants of the region, since the region’s economy was based strictly on agriculture, and the stone occupied a space that could not be planted.

- La Hazaña De Don Luis.

Possibly the most important thing that happened in this place was in 1954. The parish priest of the town of Guatapé (Alfonso Montoya) in the middle of mass launched a challenge with the expression “toads do not climb stones”. This caused several men to take this challenge personally and among them were
Ramón Díaz, Pedro Nel Ramírez
and the most famous of all
Luis Eduardo Villegas
. These men climbed this fabulous rock in 5 days, their feat ended on July 16, 1954, and was recorded as one of the most important historical events of the rock.

The feat of
Don Luis Villegas
inspired the construction of the first stairs, which were made of wood, today there are 740 and of concrete, this facilitated the ascent to the stone and gave greater security. This made it easy to climb this great natural monument.

- In Our Days

Today this is one of the most visited places by foreigners and locals, who want to enjoy one of the best views in America. Transportation is permanent and can be by bus, motorcycle, or horses can also be rented to easily climb the stone. Chen you arrive at the parking lot, you can see that there are a large number of restaurants and handicraft stores. Up to this moment, the stone is still from the family of Mr. Luis Villegas.
