"Private transportation around Medellin for independent travelers, sights visited include Pueblito Paisa, Plaza Botero, Parque Lleras, and more."
Experience the City of Eternal Spring and visit its most important sights on this half-day tour.
We will start off the tour in Pueblito Paisa, a replica of a traditional small town of Antioquia, where you’ll admire the typical large whitewashed houses decorated with beautifully painted doors as well as a traditional church and city hall. You will also get to enjoy an incredible view over Medellín, as Nutibara Hill is the perfect place to look over the city.
We will then head downtown, and on our way to the city center, walk through the tree-lined avenues of a beautiful neighborhood called Laureles. The area offers everything you can dream of if you’re looking for a good restaurant or food court. If you want, we can stay for a short while and get to know the area.
Our next stop will be at Plaza Botero, right in the center of Medellín, where you will discover the unique style of Fernando Botero, a famous Colombian artist. As we have a look at the sculptures with their disproportioned body parts and unusual forms we will learn about Botero’s sense of humor and ironic criticism. Afterwards, we will get the chance to admire the world’s largest collection of his paintings in the adjacent Museum of Antioquia and can also have a look at pre-Hispanic, Colonial and Contemporary art and much more.
We will then walk a short distance to Berrío Square, which is considered the heart of the city for it was built way back in 1680. Located in the middle of the square you can see a statue of Pedro Justo Berrío, once governor of Antioquia and an important political figure for Medellín and Colombia.
The last stop on this tour is Medellin’s posh and popular place, Parque Lleras, located in the trendy Poblado neighborhood. Here you will experience why the city is also called the City of Eternal Spring, because of the vivid streets rimmed by trees and, if you come back at night, with many sparkling lights that will invite you to linger around a bit longer. Tourists as well as locals love to enjoy the nightlife in El Poblado, so make sure you don’t miss out on this experience.
The end is up to you; you can either return to your hotel or stay in the area to check out one of the excellent restaurants our guide can recommend you.
