El Peñón de Guatapé

Local namePiedra del Peñol
LocationGuatapé, Colombia

The Rock of Guatape, or simply La Piedra or El Peñol, is a landmark inselberg also known as The Stone of El Peñol, in Colombia. It is located in the town and municipality of Guatapé, Antioquia. The town of El Peñol, which borders Guatapé, has also historically claimed the rock as their own and thus has led to different names for the site.

The landform is a granitic rock remnant that has resisted weathering and erosion, likely as result of being less fractured than the surrounding bedrock. Peñón de Guatapé is an outcrop of the Antioquia Batholith and towers up to 200 meters above its base. Visitors can scale the rock via a staircase built into one side, a path that includes more than 649 steps to the top.
