Plaza Botero - Review

Located in the Old Quarter of Medellin, the plaza owes its name to the famous Colombian artist Fernando Botero. 23 sculptures created by the artist take center stage here that were donated to the museum by Botero himself.

The well known creations called ‘Maternidad’, ‘Esfinge’, ‘Rapto de Europa’, ‘Hombre a caballo’, ‘Mujer reclinada’, ‘Hombre caminante’ and ‘Caballo con bridas’ among others, invite tourists to take photos with the art works of one of the most celebrated artists in Colombia. A walk around the plaza completes the visit.

  • If you live the work you do Botero, you don't want to miss this place! It's full of its charm and beauty. I would recommend a guided tour as this gives you the history of Botero a d Medellin's love for one of their sons. If you ask your hotel, they have a free guided tour in the mornings and you just show up. If not, then it will be part of the day tours organized locally. Be careful when you're in downtown...

  • Many wonderful sculptures grace this plaza. Two things to be aware of, you are a block or two from true sketchiness and the vendors will be omnipresent during your visit. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz

  • A bustling area filled with locals and tourists alike. A great spot for people watching and selfies with Botero's bronzes.

  • Plaza full of botero sculptures. Fine during the day, gets quite crowded at night. Was warned by the police not to walk east from the plaza but west towards the pedestrian mall and catherdal were fine.

  • Fun park at night. Cool statues. The area around it is a bit rough as others said so so be aware. Right beside subway. Close to other attractions.
