A Modern Library Perched On A Mountainside Is A Source Of Civic Pride

The Biblioteca España was built in 2009 as part of a redevelopment effort in Medellín, and has rightly become a source of civic pride. The library was built high in the mountainside barrio of Santo Domingo, to be not only a library and community center, but an inspiration to all who can see it.

We visited on a weekday afternoon to find it buzzing with activity, including a well-attended youth orchestra concert in its auditorium.

Take the Metrocable, a gondola line included in the city's metro system, for a stunning view on the way up.
