Full description
Get an insight into Colombia's troubled past on a guided tour of the formerly dangerous district of Commune 13 in Medellín.  

Discover a replica of an old village at Pueblito Paisa on Nutibara Hill, and get stunning views over the rooftops from one of the city's few conserved ecosystems. Make your way to Commune 13 to learn how the most notorious neighborhood in the country has reinvented itself.

See stunning examples of street art and graffiti that puts the political and socio-economic story of the area into context. Once the center of the gang wars and guerilla activity, the area has been transformed by the local community with the help of government projects such as a giant escalator that runs up the hill.

Visit other sustainable city projects such as the Zen-inspired Barefoot Park, the charismatic Park of Desires, and the iconic sculptures by Fernando Botero on Botero Plaza.
