Plaza Botero, Medellin Reviews

  • Surreal and Beautiful This plaza is a busy hub of activity in the middle of Medellin. The Botero sculptures are surreal and beautiful. You are able to get up right next to them ! The plaza is filled with children and adults of all ages, and is a unique part of the culture of the city. Would highly recommend seeing it as part of the Real City Walking Tours of Medellin.

  • It's kind of worrying to be followed by different people asking you for money. I'd rather avoid it if you are alone. Just stay in groups and you will be safe. However is a beautiful place worthy of visiting.

  • Great place for taking some nice pictures and for knowing more about the Colombia's history. It's highly recommend and easy to get there. Just took the Metro and leave at "Parque Berrío" station.

  • Beautiful architecture. Great place for tourist, you can find local guides, walking tours and even incredible tasty local food. Try the colombian buñuelos from any street vendor, you wont regret it😁.

  • As someone who grew up here during the era of violence and stuff I was really blown away by how much the city had changed! I spent a couple hours in plaza botero and the plaza itself is beautiful with world famous statues and lots of flowers. There are cathedrals and churches that make it look very classic and beautiful. I was walking around with a nice watch and an iPhone 7+ against the warnings of many and never did I feel unsafe. Everyone seemed happy and there was plenty of police presence reassuring everyone that you can come here and enjoy the great views
