Botero Sculptures

Around the city center you'll frequently bump into the distinctive voluptuous sculptures of paisa artist Fernando Botero, whose larger-than-life figures have become emblems of the city. Among those worth checking out is the iconic La Gorda, in front of the Banco de la República in Parque Berrío. There are three more Botero sculptures in Parque San Antonio, including the Pájaro de Paz (Bird of Peace), which sits alongside its earlier incarnation that was destroyed in a terrorist bomb attack.
