MEDELLIN | Plaza Botero is a 7,000 square metre park and plaza in downtown Medellin notable for the 23 Fernando Botero sculptures that are dotted around the park. The sculptures, which were donated to the city by Botero, were installed in 2002 as part of a wider rejuvenation of the area, which is also home to the Iglesia De La Veracruz, Palacio De La Cultura Rafael Uribe Uribe, and Museo de Antioquia.

Botero’s art is instantly recognisable for its unique style, which exaggerates the proportions of people, animals, and objects. The chubby bronze statues are fun, and the plaza is full of children, teens, and adults enjoying them. The sculptures are named simply for their subjects – for example “The Hand”, “Woman with Mirror”, and “Man on Horseback”.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
