Super recomendado. La comuna 13 es una de las experiencias más interesantes de Medellín. Esteban es un muchacho joven y super amable. Te hace vivir todo lo que ha sido el pasado de conflicto y el proceso de transformación que está viviendo la comuna, con una mirada crítica de todos los eventos. 100% recomendado
