Comuna 13 Free Tour

We will meet up at the time of your choice at San Javier metro station. From here, we will take the metro and the bus to Comuna 13 in Medellin, a fascinating hillside neighborhood full of color and life.

During the free tour of Comuna 13, we will talk about its dark past and how it was once the most dangerous area in the world. Due to its strategic location, Comuna 13 became the epicenter of violence and armed conflict in Medellin. While we contemplate its colorful graffiti, we will talk about the different military operations that took place in the area, such as the famous Mariscal and Orion.

However, walking through its steep streets you will feel totally comfortable and safe. This is due to the incredible transformation of Comuna 13 in the last decades. Thanks to the street art and its colorful murals, the locals have managed to turn it into an attractive place for visitors without forgetting its past.

After two and a half hours, we'll say goodbye and end the free tour of Comuna 13 back in the center of Medellin.
