Armenia is a city of beautiful landscapes, aromas and history. The Quimbaya civilization, master goldsmiths who disappeared shortly after the Spanish conquest, originated in this area. Founded on October 14, 1889, Armenia was a part of the department of Cauca y Caldas, and became the capital of the department of Quindio when it was created in 1966.
