Medellín exemplifies an urban oasis with a fair balance of skyscrapers and breathtaking landscapes of the Aburrá Valley and Porce River. This Colombian city is a hub for cultural festivals, contemporary public art and glitzy nightlife.
Medellín is rightly called the ‘City of Eternal Spring’ thanks to its year-round pleasant weather, best enjoyed while strolling through the lush Bolívar Park. You can also take a walk along Berrío Park, situated in the heart of the city or grab a bite at a traditional Colombian restaurant at Lleras Park. Along with parks, the city is also dotted with several plazas, such as Botero Plaza, characterised by 23 bronze sculptures and its proximity to the Museum of Antioquia. Plaza de Cisneros, known for its artificial forest of light poles, is another fascinating place to explore.
Medellín’s natural beauty can be captured through an aerial gondola ride between its steep hills. The Medellín Metro runs along the north-south and east-west corridors, making it easy to access different parts of the city. An extensive network of buses and trams also helps in improving the connectivity of the city centre to its nooks and crannies.
