La Granada – Colombia
Producer - Jesus Maria Pedraza
Quindío is a small region in the Western highlands of the Central Cordillera, one of the three principal mountain ranges that run through Colombia and converge at its southern tip to create the Andean Massif at the Ecuadorean border. The first settlers in the Pijao region arrived in the 1890s from Tolima. Many were radical
liberal guerrillas, fleeing reprisals from the governing conservative regime and the civil disorder that culminated in the Thousand Day War.
