The plaza has many Botero statues and the museum there has numerous paintings by him. The tour guide Julian, who was with our Gate One tour was excellent.

The plaza displays over a dozen Botero sculptures. We took the metro and browsed the plaza on our way to the Museo de Antioquia. This should be on our don't miss list. Plenty of restaurants in the area.

I was so excited when I learned that Botero was from Medellin & had donated many of his works of art both in the plaza & in the museo de antioquia. I love his work & this was sooooo cooool! a definite must!
