Medellin has been declared one of the most innovative cities in the world, and a project that demonstrates that innovation is the Santo Domingo Savio Library(Biblioteca de España).

North of town, up in the hills, a neighborhood called Santo Domingo Savio experienced an amazing change from one of the most economically depressed areas of the city to a prospering one, all because of a project to build a library.

More commonly known as the Spain Library (Biblioteca España), because it was built with a grant from the king of Spain, it is composed of three modern, black cubist buildings. Inside, the library not only has books but also computer rooms with free Internet and library assistants to provide help. This has given the local residents a space for social gatherings and access to information that was formerly unavailable.

This library, now an icon of cultural revival, has changed the reality for area residents. The access to information and education has meant more development, more locally owned businesses and more opportunities. The library is fully supported by the community and is kept in spotless condition. And one of the great things about this library is that you get there by Metrocable, the cable car that is the extension of the public transportation metro system, designed to join the poorer sections of Medellin to the rest of the city.

Please note The Santo Domingo Savio Library is currently closed indefinitely for renovation.
