Let's take a photo in La Plaza Botero
It is an important part of the tour of El Centro and a meeting point for many. This plaza is located outside the Museo de Antioquia and features beautiful sculptures by the famous Medellin-born artist, Fernando Botero.
Also called “Las Gordas de Botero” they are quite distorted sculptures with curious positions that allow a good photograph to be taken, a nice memory of your bachelor party in Medellin.
In the background you will find the Rafael Uribe Uribe Palace of Culture, a striking black and white checkered building where the best pieces of this paisa artist are found.
Los Pajaros de La Paz / The Birds of Peace
An emblematic activity and one that you should not overlook is to meet Las Palomas de La Paz, other bronze works by the artist Fernando Botero that represent two birds. The difference between these figures and that they represent a moment of violence in Medellin is that one of the figures has a hole from which shrapnel comes out.
In the year of 1995, a terrorist attack in the main square killed people and injured hundreds more and destroyed this sculpture. Fernando Botero donated a second identical and undamaged bird to put it next to the original. Today these birds represent a tribute to those victims and a reminder of Medellin’s dark past of violence.
Now let's go to the Park of Lights
A few blocks from Plaza Botero is the Parque de las Luces, it is an area that is in front of the public library that is full of rows of quite tall lighthouses and that at sunset are illuminated to adorn this beautiful square. This place was renovated in 2005 to make it more attractive and safe for visitors from other countries. Previously, the park of lights had serious problems with drug dealing and crime at night.
This square is made up of 300 lights and as I already told you, it becomes a spectacle at nightfall, since these lighthouses light up in different colors.
