Travel Tips for Medellín

Courtyards with fountains – everywhere

by Trekki

Nearly all courtyards of houses, restaurants and hotels do have lovely stone fountains. Usually they sit in courtyard gardens, and usually they are surrounded by a lush vegetation.

It's really fun to walk off the streets, and peak in the yards of the restaurants to find them (provided it's allowed). But well, a smile helps as always – the owners are mostly more than happy to show you their gardens and the fountains, at least this was my experience.

And again, if you want to see some more of these courtyards and fountains, check my photos, I have posted for Villa de Leiva.

Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria

by mircaskirca

Facing Parque Berrío is Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, the most important church of Medllín. It dates back to the 1776 and served as the city's cathedral from 1868 to 1931. It was restored in 1997. Other churches stood here before, the first one from 1649 was made of wood and with a thatched roof.

Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria is a colonial style construction. It looks quite unusual in the surroundings of 1970s high-rise office blocks. The basílica contains some beautiful interior decoration, including an ornate ceiling with stunning recessed panels, and important religious art, such as the painting of the Virgin of la Candelaria, belonging to the most typical Spanish colonial style.

The Botanical Garden

by MalenaN

The full name of the Botanical Garden is Jadín Botánico del Medellín Joaquin Antonio Uribe. It is named after an Antioquian botanist. The garden was founded in 1972 and has over 600 species of trees and other plants. There is a lovely lake with water lilies and turtles. There is also a small open-air auditorium where sometimes orchestra concerts are held. You can also have something to eat in the restaurant or buy something in the shop (I found many nice things but didn’t buy anything in the end). In Mach - April you can see a display of orchids in the Orquideorama. It is a relaxing place away from the city traffic.

The Botanical Garden is open between 9 - 17 every day of the week and there was no admission (July 2008).
