Plaza Mayor, Medellin

3.7
Plaza Mayor features open spaces, wide stairways, and green islets of lush vegetation in front of the international convention and exhibition center. Located in the heart of Medellin, the venue hosts the country's major events, such as the annual fashion trade show. No matter what's on, take some time to explore the area, and look for the huge mural celebrating life, which covers a long, wide stairway. Every once in a while a market of local handicrafts offers all sorts of goods, from cooking utensils, bags, and hats to paintings and hammocks. If visiting during Christmas season, you'll see the center lit up with seasonal decorations typical of Medellin.

  • The complex of Plaza Mayor is located in a very central location of the city, with easy access by public service and public parking service. Their facilities are very nice and spacious.

  • As it is a Center for all kinds of political and social gatherings, if it is empty there is no more to do than a glass building, but depending on the occasion and the decor the place comes to life. It has good acoustics, good and modern health services that usually are impeccably clean. If you want to make a great meeting you will not find a better place

  • Lousy service only have an employee at the entrance and do not have surveillance cameras, they stole me a helmet that was properly secured and the parking lot is not liable to be an element of road protection that does not integrate the vehicle, I don't recommend parking at that site
