Hello! Welcome to Medellin and Comuna 13. We are local guides passionate about urban art, graffitis, our community, its people and its history. As local residents of this Comuna, we lived its past of conflict, but we also lived its great transformation.

About the tour

If you are in Medellin, you can't leave without visiting one of its most famous Comunas, Comuna 13, which for many years was the epicenter of wars and confrontations of various groups, but today it's the proof that it is possible to live in harmony, hope and peace.

In this guruwalk we will tell you how Comuna 13 went from being the most conflictive and dangerous place in Medellín, to the most visited place in the city thanks to the change it had. Its streets, its people, its artists, the escalators and its graffiti route are the clear example that after living the worst years of war and violence, it is possible to reborn.

We will explain the meaning of the most emblematic graffitis, you will have the opportunity to meet local entrepreneurship projects, you will have fun with a show of music and urban art, you will visit the gallery of a local artist, you will enjoy the best views of the city, there will be food tastings, but above all you will have the opportunity to appreciate and understand the Comuna, its homes, landscapes and share with its people.

And as a picture is worth a thousand words ... I invite you to watch the video of our tour, and to live a unique experience in one of the most impressive neighborhoods of Medellin with this free walking tour! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F3wR38__F8E
