Amenia is the capital of the Department of Quindío, and one of the main cities in the coffee Belt of Colombia. The city was founded on October 14th 1889 by Jesús María Ocampo, who was known as the “Tigrero” (Tiger Killer), as he was a Jaguar hunter. Ocampo bought an extensive terrain where he created a small inn for himself and other pioneers that came from neighboring regions. The city was first known as Villa Holguín in honor of the then president Carlos Holguín Mallarino, but the name was later changed to Armenia in memory to the Armenian Genocide (1915-1923). Many Armenian tourists visit the city for this particular reason.The “City of Miracles” as it is called, benefited itself from highways created early in the XXth century, which allowed the city to easily reach Zarzal and other cities along the Cauca River and allowed it to development as an important trade hub. Armenia was hit badly by a strong earthquake the 25th of January in 1999 but, after 18 years, the city has been rebuilt and is now one of the most visited colombean city by tourists of all parts of the world.
