This is a man-made waterway built during the Spanish era in the northern town of Medellin. Those people who were not able to secure their cedula are made to work here. This ambitious waterway was built to create another water route that would hasten transportation.
This artificial canal is about 1.5 kilometers long and to date, Dayhagon Canal has been a favorite place for locals to wash their clothes or take a bath. Apart from that, the municipality of Medellin has also promoted the site as a good venue for kayaking.
