Tour description

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. We will explain the meaning of the most emblematic graffiti, you will have the opportunity to meet local initiatives, you will enjoy 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 La Comuna, its houses, its landscapes and share with its people.

Not worthwhile, esp if you've done other tours to learn about the history of cocaine, Pablo, etc. Tour ended at top of Communa 13 so our group was a bit stranded. Found our way down the escalators and hills and wandered a few streets to find the bus to take us back to meeting pt at San Javier Metro. Also didn't know ahead of time that you need 3000 pesos pp to ride a bus from meeting point to real start of tour (and back, 1500 each way). Ridiculous.

Lugar muy interesante, y los gurus fantásticos (en especial Leidy). Pero hay que ir preparado para constantes peticiones de donativos.
