Medellin City Tour, Colombia

Today you will visit the Plazuela San Ignacio and some excellent museums, including the Museo de Antioquia. This is Colombia's second oldest museum, with a fine collection of works from Pre-Colombian to modern art collections. On the top level, of three, you will find the works of Fernando Botero. A Paisa himself, another being Presidente Uribe, Botero has donated 92 of his works to the museum.

Outside in the plaza area opposite the museum and the Art-deco Palacio de Cultura, you will find a number of his oversized sculptures that have made him famous throughout the world. If you take a walk past the Parque Berrio Metro station you will find another Botero Sculpture, La Gorda, the fat woman, in front of the Banco Republica.
