If you have come to Medellín you cannot leave without knowing one of its most famous municipalities, La Comuna 13. For many years it has been the epicenter of wars and clashes of various groups outside the law, but today it is the sign that it does he can live in hope, harmony and peace. In this guruwalk we will tell you how La Comuna 13 went from being the most confrontational and dangerous place in Medellín, to becoming the most visited place in the city thanks to the change it has undergone. Its streets, its people, its artists, its escalators and its graffiti path are the clear example that after experiencing the worst years of war and violence, you can be reborn.

Really great tour! It was so much better than I expected. I liked that we actually walked up the hill instead of just taking the escalator. Our guide was really knowledgeable and shared so much interesting information about the local art, artists, and neighborhood. The last two stops where we had popsicles and watched a local dance troupe were a fantastic end to a fun tour.

Our tour guide Alex was truly a special person. He was very kind and was excited to share all his wisdom. He offered lots of history and answered all of our questions. One note: you’ll have to take a bus up to the comunidad, so bring cash to ride the bus.

El recorrido fue muy interesante, las muestras gastronómicas deliciosas( Helados) bastante enriquecedor en cuanto a la historia de Colombia, nos gustó la muestra de baile callejero, los murales y grafitis. Pudimos en general interiorizar el cambio que ha tenido la comuna 13 durante estos años. Además el guía con unabactitud amable y acogedora nos dió opciones para elegir lugares por conocer.
