A wonderful place where you can see more than 1200 butterflies from 40 different species alive, flying, eating and interacting.It´s a place for fun and learning as you can see the entire process of the butterflies since it´s an egg, a caterpillar that forms the chrysalis and finally the butterfly is born.This is a unique place to appreciate butterflies in Medellín Located inside a shopping mall and , near the metro station Niquia.

Worth every moment! My daughter and I visited during our tour of Colombia and it was well worth the time. The tour guide spoke english which was a pleasant surprise, he was very knowledgable about the local flora and fauna.
