I would love to give this place a glowing recommendation, but unfortuntely there isn't much to see. The area is closed off, and the library is covered up as it undergoes repairs. I was very disappointed when I made the journey this morning. It's a shame because the site is beautiful, with a fantasic view into the valley. It also... 更多
This is one of the many library parks in Medellin. I really wanted to visit this one, but it is currently being renovated. The library parks are one of the major innovations in this city; try to visit one of them.
Go for the views of the city. The library is under construction -- looks like they're not only repairing the existing buildings but adding a third phase. The neighborhood is fine, and walking around a small perimeter area felt perfectly safe. I was with a group of 12 foreign university students and sure, we got some looks, but people could... 更多
The place is overrated. There is no question of its social impact, what is critical is the condition of the building. As a building is poor. The best library project is Parque Belen, but not possible to suggest.
As other have reported this is closed for renovations. Of course, the gorgeous views are still there. However the street leading to the library from the metrocable felt less safe than during my visit three years ago. Perhaps that is because there is a lot less foot traffic on it now. So maybe best to just enjoy the views from... 更多
The buildings of Biblioteca Espana is quite interesting itself and is located on a high hill with a wonderful view on the city and justat the place of Metrocable connection to parque Arvi. But nowadays it's closed for reconstruction and looks quite dangerous if you walk very close. But it will work for the lovers of abandoned places. And anyway... 更多
Absolutely fantastic (and sweeping) views of the city of Medellin from the MetroCable ride between Acevedo station and the Santo Domingo Station, the closest to the Biblioteca de Espana (a donation from the Spanish Government to the impoverished comuna of Santo Domingo). The architecture of the Biblioteca building is very imposing and distinct, easy to spot from the base of... 更多
The Biblioteca Espana (Spanish Library) is a great example of how culture can be brought to lower income barrios. It is a wonderful opportunity for the local students to gain access to the world of education. There were some very interesting artworks on display during our visit. The building is an architectural structure worth seeing in itself. Great little restaurant... 更多
This library is fantastic. The architecture is very unusual. Watching the children using the computers is a trip. Seems the girls are doing School work and the boys are playing games!
