Very cultural displays of art. Lively plaza. The architectural design was appealing. This is a place I would visit again.

The plaza is impressive in its own right, but the Fernando Botero giant sculptures are amazing. The large scale of the pieces combined with his whimsical touch, make for great viewing and great photo opportunities.

This is in the middle of Medellin city, very nice place with lots of stores and art. Great to just walk around and enjoy a juice!

This place is overrated . The sculptures are nice but you are besieged by an army of vendos and beggars . Not recommended after dark . Adjacent neighborhoods are not safe

Impressive collection of statues great for photos and hanging out. A couple of worthwhile museums to visit as well. The Antioquia museum 3rd floor has many more Botero statues as well as dozens of his great paintings.
