Universidad de Antioquia, Medellin
(4.7/5 based on 50+ 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.

  • meet the University of Antioquia is to meet Medellin with all its facets: there are rich, poor, at all levels, of all political and religious beliefs. It is an area in which all ideas, where are discussed have a place, you grow, conclusions are. It has a huge library, excellent plant systems for access to all your information. There are various meals, large areas of sport, green areas suitable for breathing air pure (and, why not, for innocent love). A great Museum, a large theatre (camilo Torres, where payment is not allowed by any presentation), access doors on 3 sides, proximity to the subway, large group of bus routes, now with shopping malls to side and side. This blessed alma.mater who saw me grow physically, professionally and work...! how much love... how much you miss her! ...

  • Universidad de referencia regional y nacional.
  • Amo mi universidad.
  • 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!
