Our comuna 13 graffiti tour offers a view through Medellin’s transformation over the last 20 years. We’ll go by the surroundings of the Comuna 13, previously known as one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the world;
Medellin nowadays, is full of urban artistic expressions and that’s why the local authorities declared the urban art as city’s icon. One of the most important is graffiti, not only for its artistic components and strong culture but also as cultural expression. We´ll visit graffiti artists, hip-hop singers and dancers who send their peace messages through music, education, graffiti, breakdance and vinyl. These artists are 90% responsible for the graffiti’s you’ll see at the Comuna 13 tour.
Another place of interest at the Comuna 13 are the first public and free electric escalators, located at the Las Independencias” neighborhood. These are an icon of social urbanism for the Local Administration. This avant-garde project is the first social urban mobility system of Colombia and the world, replacing 350 concrete steps and benefits 12,000 citizens living in that place of the city. A total investment of $10’000.000.000 COP.
