The Birth of Medellin
Medellin DatingGet to know the History of Medellin

Spanish Conquest

Medellin (Me-de-yin) is located in Aburrá Valley, where Amerindian groups have inhabited since the 5th century B.C.

In August 1541, Marshall Jorge Robledo noticed a valley at the distance from a place known today as Heliconia; then, he sent Jerónimo Luis Tejelo to explore it.

In the Chronicles on the Indies, around 3,000 natives fiercely resisted the Spaniards’ arrival in their territory. The natives engaged in agriculture, textile, pottery, and goldsmithing among many others.

The natives’ textile decorations led the Spaniards to change the valley’s name to Aburrá— a native term which translates to Painters— which was previously named as the Valley of Saint Bartholomew.

Spanish rule and diseases from Europe caused the extinction of the natives from the Aburrá Valley; moreover, the natives’ fierceness and lack of wealth discouraged the Spaniards’ immediate settlement.

Spanish Settlement

Historians believe that among the early settlers were Spanish Jews, who were expelled or had fled Spain, when the Spanish Crown began systematically persecuting Jews.

In 1574, Antioquia’s Cabildo gave Don Gaspar de Rodas three square miles of land – out of the four he requested – to get him started with the agricultural business of cattle and crops to supply food in Aburrá Valley.

In March 1616, Don Francisco de Herrera y Campuzano established the first European settlement, with 80 natives, in the southern part of Aburrá Valley. It is known today as El Poblado, where early developments started.

Since then, the population has started to grow. Aburrá Valley became the source of food for the surrounding areas.

In 1646, Colonial Law ordered racial segregation among the natives, mulattos, mestizos, and Spaniards. Interracial marriage of Spaniards and the former racial categories was deeply frowned upon.

The racial segregation and prohibition of interracial marriage caused the formation of the identity Paisa, also known as Antioqueños. It refers to the people of the Antioquia region. Scientific studies considered ‘Paisas’ as a genetically-isolated population.

Growth of Medellin

The once provincial capital, known today as Santa Fe de Antioquia, gradually lost its importance because the traders and prominent people moved to Aburrá Valley.

Disputation regarding settlements and governance between the ruling government of Santa Fe de Antioquia and distant areas occurred.

In 1674, Queen Regent Mariana of Austria authorized the formation of settlements and cities. The following year, she founded Villa de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria de Medellín.

Within the year, the first census was taken; there were 3,000 people and 280 families.

Between 1786 and 1787: around 14,500 people and 240 families.

In 1808: around 15,350 people and 360 families.

Spanish Colonization Period

In 1801, King Charles IV of Spain allowed the establishment of a college-convent in Medellin; two years later, the Royal College of the Franciscans was founded.

It was the foundation for education in the city and initially offered degrees in Latin, Grammar, Philosophy, and Theology.

In 1821, it was renamed Colegio De Antioquia; yet by 1901,it became University of Antioquia as it is known today.

The University of Antioquia has opened a trade and arts school, the first vocational school, the first regional botanical garden and cultural radio station in South America. It became a national and international cultural center.

In 1826, Villa de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria de Medellín became the capital of Antioquia. Soon after, the city’s name shortened to Medellin.

Industrial Revolution

Between 1899 and 1902, the Thousand Days War halted the industrial development of the city, despite not directly affecting the region.

In 1905, the Medellin population count rose to 60,000.

Under President Rafael Reyes, the city resumed its industrial development and the Chamber of Commerce was founded, which created and implemented the regional transport project that connected Medellin to Bogota, Cali and Littoral.l

In 1923, Medellin's first airport— Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport— was built.

In 1950s, the local government, industrialists, traders, and architects created the Medellin Master Plan (MMP) that would make the city the first metropolitan area in Colombia.

Airport, Railways, Gold-based, and Coffee trade has massively contributed to the city’s economic growth. The worldwide bonanza of coffee prices increased the production of coffee, and opened the doors to international trade. Coffee became the main export of Colombia.

The profits were invested and gambled in the textile industry with huge success because it turned the city into Colombia’s second industrial zone and the home of the leading textile industry in South America.

By 1970, the Medellin population count exceeded 1,000,000. It led to new problems: high-unemployment rate, lack of services for the poor, and violence.

Medellin Cartel

During the 1970s to 1980s, a ruthless paisa named Pablo Escobar, the King of Cocaine, founded Medellin Cartel.

It is a terrifyingly violent and highly-organized drug cartel in Colombia that smuggled kilos of cocaine in Europe, Canada, the United States, Central and South America.

It supplied about 80% of United State’s cocaine market and controlled 90% of the global cocaine market.

With about 300 kilos of cocaine per month and up to $60 million of daily drug profits, it is no surprise that by 1982: cocaine exceeded coffee.

Medellin Cartel took over Colombia through corruption, greed, and fear. Its members have killed drug lords, civilians, journalists, judges, police officials, government officials and Luis Carlos Galán - a leading presidential candidate in 1990 who openly declared himself an enemy of the drug cartels.

In 1989, Medellin Cartel bombed Avianca Flight 203 that killed 107 people when it exploded over the town of Soacha.

Medellin became the murder capital of the world because of drug cartels, right-wing paramilitaries, left-wing guerrillas and criminal groups pushing the city’s homicide rate to the roof.

The war against Drugs broke off, which led to Pablo Escobar’s death in December 1993.

Rebirth of Medellin

In late 2003, peace agreements between illegal armed groups and Medellin occurred through giving amnesty to most of those who put their guns down.

It was reported that gang members had sought therapy sessions, while hitmen sought guitar lessons.

In 2004, Mayor Sergio Fajardo’s administration focused on education and community-building. He led a comprehensive plan in transforming Medellin, which follows:

  • Making public transportation easier while reducing travel time and cost;
  • Built parks for the children;
  • Transformed once-bloody areas to terraced plazas;
  • Linked neighborhoods with new bridges across canyons and streams;
  • Built library parks that offer free computer centers, libraries and day care;
  • Placed bright orange signs with “Violence will not return to my city”.

The homicide rate has dropped by more than 80%.

In 2012, Medellin was nominated for Most Innovative City of the Year because of the huge progress that has happened since then.

The Medellin government launched Medellin: Adelanta y Sin Reversa campaign, that translates Medellin: Forward and without reverse.

Today, Medellin is among the safest cities in Colombia. It has been named as “The City of Eternal Spring” with history and destinations to take pride of.
