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.

Beautiful city centre with greenery, art magnificent buildings near to the metro station. Food and transport close by. Great photos
Really lovely part of Medellín especially with the kids. The museum is wonderful too.
Nice place with beautiful sculptures, people sell you miniature replicates, key chains and other souvenirs
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
