Description

We invite you to live a great experience in commune 13 of Medellín, in the company of a local guide. Our guides will tell you about their experiences in that period of terror, for them and their families, who witnessed the cruelty of the clashes between the different armed groups. You will witness social transformation, through urban art and the union of the resilient community, little by little defeating weapons and violence. On the tour we will find murals with historical significance told by your guide, street shows (dances and improvisation) you can make your own graffiti, you will go up to the viewpoint, using the escalators from where you can see a large part of commune 13 and Medellín . We will enter quiet alleys and stairs, leaving the touristy things aside and enjoying as if you were a local. You will also find urban art galleries, souvenir sales, cafes, bars, restaurants, crafts, the traditional ice creams of Comuna 13 (mango biche and maracumango), typical gastronomy and much more. At the end of the tour, if you wish, you can continue exploring more of the commune, on your own or our guide will accompany you again to the transport. Does NOT include Metrocable or return transportation.
