Plaza Mayor

Headquarters of the capital's economy

This urban complex has made up one of the city's largest urban landmarks during the last few decades, and even well into the 21st century. As Medellín didn't have a suitable centre for organising important trade fairs, the authorities decided to create a place where the most important national and international companies arrange to come here each year, and they certainly managed to do so. Since then, Medellín has become a favourite destination in Colombia for all kinds of business events and conventions. The exhibition centre's modern architecture, the surrounding green areas, its well taken care of gardens, and the peaceful atmosphere in its vicinity are more than enough reasons for discovering this very important enclave in the economy of the Antioquian capital. This centre is very near Parque de los Pies Descalzos (Barefoot Park), so you can make the most of your visit round this area to discover both places.
