Without any doubt, Fernando Gonzalez Ocha (1895 – 1964) was a fundamental part of the Antioquenian Paisa Culture. Better known as the philosopher from otraparte (somewhere else), he left a legacy behind in his passage through life, among others in the Nadista Poets Movement, who used to gather at his house, which he named Otraparte (Somewhere else) , for conversation and intelectual parties.

The philosopher, the teacher, the writer, and for many people, the friend left his house to the municipality of Envigado, with the condition that it should be used as a cultural centre, and so it has been, today the house is a Museum and also has a beautiful coffee shop, which together form a cultural oasis to the south of Medellin City.
