"MEDELLIN: POINTY COLUMNS" Colombia Things to Do Tip by swesn

Colombia Things to Do: 240 reviews and 516 photos

This square MUST have a proper name but unfortunately, I don't know it. I call it the Pointy Columns because they are a series of long columns just standing there in the square.

From Centro Administrativo La Alpujarra (Alpujarra metro station), face north and you can see these curious columns.

Apparently, at night, these pointy columns turn bright and the brightness is dependent on the phase of the moon. How ingenuous!! Naturally, this means that it makes the most sense to come here for a visit on a full-moon night.
