Three tourist sites that are not so touristy in Medellin and Antioquia
Pedro Nel Gómez Museum
Three thousand two hundred works make up the collection of oil paintings, watercolors, pastel drawings, drawings, sculptures, photographs and documents that reveal data on the life of the painter, muralist, sculptor, architect, urban planner and engineer from Antioquia.
The artist himself with a style reminiscent of Art Deco designed the construction of the Pedro Nel
Gómez Museum House.
It is open to the public from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Moravia Hill (Cerro de Moravia)
It was the garbage dump of the city between 1977 and 1984. Characterized by the precariousness in the houses of those who inhabited it, the instability of the soil, the presence of industrial waste and the constant emanation of toxic gases, is today the largest garden in Medellín and an example of social resilience.
Made up of 30 thousand square meters of gardens and plots, the Cerro de Moravia is a landmark of resilience and urban development and transformation, in a city that long ago ceased to be the most violent city in the world.
