Medellín City ViewColombia’s “City of Eternal Spring” in the north-central part of the country was once known as the “Murder Capital of the World” in the 1980s and 90s, but now is a safe, modern city with some interesting tourist sites. The main attractions are Plaza Botero, is an outdoor collection of artist Fernando Botero’s huge statues of fat people and animals, and the cable car lift for spectacular views of the city and outlying area. Medellín is also a great base for day trips to smaller colonial villages in the region.

About admin

I've been fascinated by world cultures all my life. I tried to teach myself Spanish at age 9, but that didn't work so well. I voraciously read books on all areas of the world as a teenager. I grew up to study languages and cultures in college, and have travelled in over 70 countries on 6 continents exploring what is unique and essential to each culture.
