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.

Plaza Botero, Medellin Reviews

  • 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.

  • Loved the sculptures! Loads to see and the area is very central. Sadly the area is more intimidating that most of the city. We visited during the day when police were present so it was fine. As the sun started setting we rushed off to avoid the hecticness. Don’t go at night - you would’nt be able to take good photos or visit the local museums anyway!

  • I love hanging out in a free place with cool things to see. Plaza Botero offers them all good statue and spacious area to hang out with friends.

  • If your a gringo take care. Go when there is a good police presence. Many homeless and people upto no good are in the area. Its very interesting and the Art is nice.

  • An English version of trafalgar Square. Very busy with people, alot of homeless people around so be careful if your travelling around with your belongings. I enjoyed looking at the different arts around. They also have people doing portrait pictures and selling many items around the area.
