Plaza Mayor, Medellin
(4.2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.
