Nestled on top of one of the Eastern hills of Medellin, the Santo Domingo Library has become an important icon in the cultural development of the city and a preferred destination among the many things to do in Medellin.
Santo Domingo Savio neighborhood has been for decades one of the most depressed areas in the city but with the construction of the metro cable and the Santo Domingo Library, the change has started bringing some more development and wealth to all its inhabitants.
Medellin has lately been nominated as one of the most innovative cities in the world, and that’s because of this kind of improvements in the quality of life of the people in this poor areas.
This Park-Library, located under a Northeast Integral Urban Project named “My neighborhood actions”, which takes place in the influence area of the Metrocable transportation system, is an opportunity to provide a space for social inclusion, gatherings, coexistence and access to information, in a developing territory that was initially very informal with disjointed and ineffective governmental actions.
Inaugurated in 2004 with the presence of the Spanish King, Santo Domingo Library construction makes a huge contrast with the hundreds of poor dwellings that surrounds it.
It’s located beside the Santo Domingo metro-cable station, at Carrera 33 B # 107 A – 100, Santo Domingo Savio neighborhood
