Art Filled Plaza in the Middle of MedellinFernando Botero, the second most famous man from Medellin, is best know for his larger-than-life sized figures rendered both in paintings and sculpture.
Twenty-three of his sculptures are on permanent display in the Plaza Botero (a.k.a. Plaza de Las Esculturas), and many of his paintings, including the Death of Pablo Escobar, hang in the Museo de Antioquia right off the square.
Unlike most art, shut away in a museum, Botero's sculptures and the plaza named in his honor have become a lot like the living room of Medellin. It's not all uncommon to see people, especially children, climbing and lounging alongside them.
