Once the most violent neighborhoods of Medellin, Comuna 13 is now the scenario for Hip Hop artists. Also get to travel up the hills on the first public/outdoor escalators built in the city to amazing views of Medellín. Come and see how locals have transformed their homes and lives around art that involves dancing, painting, music, and lots more! (You may even get to meet some of the artists as we visit their galleries or get a private rap or hip hop dance performance.) DISCLAIMER: This tour includes political and violent history.

I joined this tour in progress and was greeted immediately which was pretty cool. The art and information was really cool, I hope to catch this one again in its entirety - fingers crossed!

Comuna 13, a neighborhood that ripped itself out of a violent, dark past into a bright, expressive, artistic future ... at the heart of this transformation are the people, those you see every day who bring light with a smile that, not long ago, was impossible. This place is the heart of human resilience, the home of hope denying fear its due. When the brush and the beats replaced the dark arts of violence, new life emerged. Thank you, Santi, for showing us these beautiful people and allowing us to share in their joys and sorrows. 5++++
