History, sociey, culture and sightseeing in one - this is the culmination (usually) of the transformation tour. An astonishing part of the city to witness. An absolute highlight.

An easy and practical way to get to the Comuna 13. A place you must visit when in Medellin. Do be aware of your personal belongings.

It was an incredible 2 hours learning about the history of Comuna 13 and operacion Orion. Our guide was pretty awesome, knew everyone. I even got to meet world famous grafiti artist Chota in is house/bar/painting den. I would highly recommend this as an experience.

The Communa and the stairs are very busy by tourists, but only because it´s very special. Don´t miss it: - street Art - street food - music
