Photos capturing the famous granite dome (aka El Peñón) and the view from its summit at over 7,000 feet in elevation at Guatapé, Colombia. Featuring a stairway of 740 steps built inside its chasm, the monolithic rock is a national monument in the Andes that overlooks the lakeside region of Peñol-Guatapé.
