Segovia is a municipality in Antioquia, founded in 1869.  Before colonists arrived, the Segoviano territory was populated by Tahamíes and Yamecíes natives. Explorers followed and discovered the mines of gold in Segovia. From then on many expeditions sought the valuable metal, which has been mined to the present day.  The gold fever monopolized the attention of all those that arrived.
