A spacious and good-sounding theater that emanates a good atmosphere in its finishes and halls, apart from the fact that this site is one of the centers for national and international events for the city of Medellín (outside the La Macarena events plaza).

Great place for attend events where sound and lights could be a top companion. Discreet, clean, with good attention and parking places. As be inside of University of Medellin this brings the place a secure aspect. Pay attention as if you assist to event here you cannot get in whit beverages and drinks.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
