Welcome to Medellin! My name is Sara and I invite you to live the best experience in Comuna 13 of Medellín, in the company of a local guide.
A place marked for a long time by violence and thanks to its transformation through art, today it is one of the most visited places in the city.

We tell you the history of Comuna 13:

 - The period of violence with the FARC and ELN guerrillas
 - Paramilitary groups
 - Military operations
 - Criminal gangs
 - Transformation through urban art
 - The escalators.
 - Viewpoints

Our guides (Sara, Andrés, Eirene) will tell you about their experiences in that period of terror, for them and their families, who witnessed the cruelty of the clashes between guerrillas and paramilitaries, the wounded, the dead, and the forced disappearances.

We will find on the tour murals with historical significance told by your guide, street shows (dance and improvisation) representing Hip Hop. Ascent to the viewpoint , through the escalators from where you can see a large part of Comuna 13 and Medellín.
