COMUNA 13 / MEDELLIN GRAFFITI TOUR
MEDELLIN GRAFFITI TOUR.
Once one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Medellín – Comuna 13. This area clings to the mountainside above the San Javier metro station, has undergone an impressive transformation in recent times and is now considered safe to visit. The focal point of a trip to the comuna is the area around the escaleras electricas, the outdoor escalators that provide access to homes in marginalized barrios
Not only is there amazing street art, but there are also stunning views, fantastic street food, potential encounters with local graffiti artists, escalators, shopping opportunities and even a slide!
These escalators that are split into six climbing 1,260ft were installed to help improve the access for local residents who struggled to climb up and down the steep steps. It’s not only impressive because it’s the first of its kind in the world and aimed at improving the lives of its residents.
