Universidad de Antioquia, Medellin

(4.7/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Head to Universidad de Antioquia, which has a museum as well as a lush and vibrant common area ideal for relaxing and watching the day go by. The oldest and second-largest university in the country, there are over 36,000 students on this main campus, so be aware that there may be a dense concentration of people on site. Tourists are not officially allowed onto university grounds without showing ID, but an appeal to the security personnel here has been known to do the trick. Once inside the museum, check out the anthropological section, the oldest and largest in Latin America.

  • It is a great place because it is old and the campus is very nice. It has also green areas, a sculpture of Arenas Betancur and generally worth knowing it

  • A nice place to visit and disperse the mind. It is a good place to talk or just sit down and think a good time.

  • It may not be the best university of the country for statistics but it is for me. I love Thee, UdeA.
  • Largest campus of the second best university in Colombia, located in the capital of the province of Antioquia. It is called "Ciudad Universitaria" and has more than 30.000 students.
  • The best ever!
