An architect's dream
This is probably the one thing that every guidebook will tell you to do and it may seem extremely touristy to do so, but it really is worth the trip. I easily took the metro from the Poblado neighborhood and transferred to the cable car with no problem. Once you get closer to the top you have a choice of getting off at the somewhat new constructed library, Parque Biblioteca España, in the Santo Domingo neighborhood or one stop after at the Botanical garden. Which ever stop you choose, you will certainly leave with a better appreciation for urban renewal and architecture and a greater understanding of daily living for most people in Medellin.
