El Peñon de Guatape also known as "La Piedra Del Peñol" "La Piedra" and "El Peñol" in Spanish, meaning "The Rock of Guatape" and "The Stone of El Peñol".  The grand formation towers over the municipality of Guatapé, receiving hundreds of tourists every year interested in its spectacular nature and its fascinating history of Guatape Medellin Colombia.

Guatape rock — The rock borders the towns of Guatapé and El Peñol, both had claimed long been opposed to the ownership of the rock. The story of competing for ownership of the rock happened once when the residents of the town of Guatape Medellin decided to solve this ownership problem by painting the name of their town on the rock in huge white letters. 

El Penol Colombia — The residents of Penol town quickly discovered the work of the residents of Guatapé town, so they gathered at the rock in large numbers to protest against the painting, demanding that the town of Guatapé immediately stop marking this sovereignty. Thus, only one letter, "G" and half the letter "U" were completed. These two giant letters can still be seen on the northern surface of the rock today.

Guatape Colombia rock was first officially conquered by three climbers Luis Villegas, Pedro Nel Ramírez, and Ramón Díaz.

During the 1940s, the Colombian government declared the rock a "National Monument" and a landmark inselberg in Colombia.
