Museo Botero information
The highlight of Banco de la República's massive museum complex is several halls spread over two floors dedicated to all things chubby: hands, oranges, women, mustached men, children, birds, Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) leaders. All of these are, of course, the robust paintings and sculptures of Colombia's most famous artist, Fernando Botero (Botero himself donated these works).
The collection also includes several works by Picasso, Chagall, Renoir, Monet, Pissarro and Miró, and some hilarious sculptures by Dalí and Max Ernst. Audio guides in English, French and Spanish (COP$6000) are available from the museum complex's main entrance on Calle 11.
