This is an absolute must if you visit Medellin! To see the works of Botero on display in a public space is absolutely amazing! The "fat figures" are very cool. There are VERY MANY vendors around selling Botero prints and small figures for pretty cheap...More

Great place to see free art by Botero. Also you can visit the museum. It’s crazy. 100 meters from metro.

We were so very impressed with this Plaza with its excellent displays of Botero art. You can easily spend a few hours here. Easy to find your way around and the art was brilliantly displayed.

The Plaza is located in a bad side of town; if you go I strongly recommend you go with a guide. The Plaza is full of vendors and there us not much to see. Not the best tourist attraction. Just be careful when going.
