Medellín is the second largest city in Colombia after the capital Bogotá. It is located in the Aburrá Valley in the Andes at an altitude of 1,500m (5,000 ft.) above sea level and hence also referred to as the ‘capital of the mountains’. Despite its location, Medellín is an industrial hub with companies in the food, flower and tobacco industries as well as cement production. The city is particularly well-known for its textile industry: Medellín is the most important location for this sector in South America.
