Plaza Botero is the main square in Medellin. This is where you find Museo De Antioquia and Palacio De La Cultura Rafael Uribe Uribe. For the latter, you can go up to the rooftop to see a view of the square. Safety-wise, it is OK inside the square, but it would be wise to be cautious in the surrounding area.... More

The plaza is smaller than one expects. A famous hotel fronts on the plaza, but it is in a section of Medellin I would not want to be at night.

Just go and mingle with ordinary Colombians and keep your valuables safe but really it's so fun and special.. see the amazing statues of bronze and buy some mango from a street vendor .....

Visiting the Botero Plaza and Museum should be a must when you visit this great city. A great artist and a proud son of Medellin!

. This is a wonderful plaza where the city has transformed what was a negative space into a lovely area showcasing fabulous work from Botero.

This may be one of the best spots in Medellín. You can appreciate Fernando Botero's art as you enjoy a nice fruit, typical from Colombian gastronomy.

Very Beautiful sculptures and art work. A bustling part of town but not unfriendly in the least. Visited while on a walking tour, would have loved to return on our own if time had permitted. Definitely check it out.

The statues are beautiful and the story behind the donation is really interesting, but there are so many people trying to selling you something or ask for money it's difficult to enjoy it in peace. Don't miss the Museo de Antioqua right across the square. A very beautiful museum, you'll need a few hours.
