What you'll do

Paris is famous for its tower, London for its clock, New York for its skyscrapers and Medellin for its social and urban transformation. That is why we want you to know about its history, growth, development and that you understand why in 2013 we were classified as "the most innovative city in the world" by the City Bank and the Wall Street Journal. And what better place to know first hand this transformation than the famous but little discovered Comuna 8? At San Antonio station we will have a competition for those who find more plastic bottles to pay for the ticket! There we will take the first modern tram of Colombia, we will climb the historic Ayacucho street full of urban art, then we will take the first metrocable that reaches one of the highest neighborhoods of the city, then we will walk like a local through the narrow streets full of stairs to then enter the beautiful Jardin Circunvalar, a park that joins the urban with the rural. There we will have some of the best views over the city! We will finish in a magical waterfall hidden inside the neighborhood and then proceed to take another metrocable to get off the tram and return to the subway to conclude this great experience.

Entonces noté que las personas de otros países podían aprender directamente de nuestras comunidades, pero también compar

Where you'll be

We will visit the little known but inspiring Comuna 8 of Medellín to know its tram, metrocables and one of the most interesting parks in the city because it serves as the limit of urban and rural. In addition, we will visit one of the highest neighborhoods on the mountain and see a hidden waterfall in the middle of the neighborhood.
