A good place to take the pulse of Medellín is Bolivar Park, opened in 1892 and named in honour of the Liberator Simón Bolívar. Passers-by enjoy the repertoire of the Symphonic Band at the University of Antioquia on the first three Sundays of each month, while the first Saturday of the month they can attend the traditional market of San Alejo.
