Full description
"Think differently", "believe in social changes" and "generate economic alternatives" are some of the initiatives which are the fundamental ideas behind this tour. With this tour you will honor those heroes, many of them anonymous, with their only wishes being the welfare of their community.

The tour begins with a brief awareness talk which takes place in the Museo Casa de La Memoria, here you will become aware of the changes that have occurred in the city of Medellin. You will then depart to Saint Antonio Park, where you will be touched by the powerful image of a bomb in a sculpture, before you will meet your local guide in the cultural center.

After a short video and explanation about the project and how they work together with the community, there is a graffiti and urban art tour around the sidewalks. You can walk the streets with the locals and make a great cultural interaction with the community projects.
