The square of crime is transformed into the square of hope. With tall poles with lights on them. This place looks really good at night when light up.

The idea behind many of Medellin's public spaces is to recover and rehabilitate dangerous areas. This was a success. Now a plaza with the theme of recovering the area from darkness, this square is very symbolic and you can take excellent photos as well.

It's a beautiful park, it has a monuments like sticks or pipes vertically located, and look so good! The park has sits public toilets, and offers a relaxing space in the middle of the city and the commercial zone called "El Hueco". It's near by San Antonio's metro station.

An open space with columns that light up at night. Apparently it is not too safe at night but I didn't have any fears there during the day so worth a quick visit then

Medellin was trying to conserve energy. So the Lights in the park never went on - even at night. So there was not much to see.
