  • Medellín: Private City Tour with Metrocable and Comuna 13

    4. Medellín: Private City Tour with Metrocable and Comuna 13

    Get an insight into Colombia's troubled past on a private guided tour of the formerly dangerous district of Comuna 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 Comuna 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 the Botanical Garden and other sustainable city projects such as the charismatic Park of Desires, and the iconic sculptures by Fernando Botero on Botero Plaza.

    We had gone to the botanical garden and the Pueblito Viejo had access issues so Mauricio took us first to Parque Arvi by cable car. The view of Medellin was phenomenal! The park is gorgeous and there was an awesome market for breakfast and arts & crafts. On the way back we took the Metro to Plaza Botero - the Botero sculptures juxtaposed with the checkered building are cool, though it’s not the nicest area of Medellin. Finally we drove to the Comuna 13. Mauricio told us about the history of the place and the stories behind most graffiti. Comuna 13 was the highlight of the tour and well worth it with an awesome guide. We had late lunch at the top of the Comuna in a neat house. We took the best pictures around Comuna 13 - so colorful!
