Itinerary:

Take a half day Social Transformation tour and see how the city of Medellin has transformed since the 1980s when the city was considered one of the most dangerous in the world. Start in the Poblado district where Pablo Escobar once lived and take the cable car which connects different areas of the city and has transformed the daily life of many residents. Learn more about the city’s transformation and get to know the innovative transport-systems first hand. Next explore Medellin’s newest invention: the electric stairways of the district Comuna 13. As you climb this stairway your guide will relay stories about its past by visiting the most important places marked by historical events and exploring some of the street art that symbolizes a form of expression for the community. Here it is possible to enjoy the beautiful view over the city from the balconies of San Javier. This inspirational tour will finish at La Plazoleta located in the city centre, in an area that fell into decline in the 1980s and today houses 23 sculptures by Fernando Botero, donated by this famous local artist in year 2000 to help the regeneration of the city.
