Full description
You will be greeted by your guide, who will explain the history and meaning of the more than two hundred pieces of graffiti, which were created primarily by local artists. Climb to the highest point of the neighborhood (with beautiful views) taking one of the most innovative works of the city, the outdoor public electric stairs built to improve the mobility of the entire neighborhood.

Your guide will tell you about the history and the problems experienced in the city and in the neighborhood. Be part of what is known as community tourism, where you are the engine of change for places like the Commune 13, which years ago were the center of violence and poverty.

Let yourself fall in love with this place and have an unforgettable educational experience knowing that you are helping improve this once struggling district of Colombia.
