The Museum of Antioquia

The Museum of Antioquia is located in the center of Medellín on the Plaza Botero near the Berrío Park metro station. Visiting it was a nice change from more athletic activities.

It houses many works by Fernando Botero but the museum forbids photographs of his work, which of course makes tourists angry!

This museum is right in front of the iconic Plaza Botero, where the 23 statues of “Gordas de Botero” are displayed outside.
