What To Expect
See what a real Medellin barrio truly looks like on your tour away from the touristy areas of the city. Explore Medellin's poorest slums together with a knowledgeable tour guide who can answer all your questions.
Start off the tour by visiting the San Javier Public Library (Parque Biblioteca San Javier) which symbolizes the integration of individuals to end the violence. Then, go explore the Comuna 13, a slum located at the steep side of the hill. As you walk through the slums, admire the graffiti art projects that the government has launched along with the widening of walking paths, providing space for the leisure of residents, and foundation and appearance improvement of the surrounding houses.
Through your guide, learn about the massive public escalator that the Medellin government has put up for the slum residents' convenience. For many generations, the people from this area have experienced climbing a 28-story building-like climb just to get from their houses to somewhere else. With the establishment of these massive public escalators, residents and tourists alike will find comfort in going from point A to B.
