Silleta culture


The essence of the Antioqueño campesino or peasant is embodied by those, who in times past, after forging the road to prosperity by traversing mountains carrying a wooden Silleta laden with merchandise and flowers, became the pride of a people. Declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Nation, The Silletero Parade, saw its advent in Santa Elena Annexed Village, birthplace of the Silletero.
