Medellín transformed from one of the most dangerous cities in the world into one of the most innovative metropolises. Learn about the transformation of this fascinating metropolis and enjoy its awesome atmosphere, figurative and literally.
Slightly more than 20 years ago, Medellín was one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Back in the early 90s, hunting on Pablo Escobar, the head of Medellín's drug cartel was at its peak. Thus the reign of “El Patrón” came to its end. Since 2002 Medellín began to change. Today the “City of Eternal Spring” is one of the most innovative metropolises in the world. Stroll through the hustle and bustle of downtown Medellín to the famous Botero Plaza with an exhibition of the Colombian artist Fernando Botero, whose sculptures have become a landmark of the city. Join us on an exciting tour through the history and present of Medellín and learn more about the transformation of this fascinating metropolis. Learn about the city's transformation while using the innovative transport-system in the poorer neighborhoods. Explore Medellín’s newest invention: the electric stairways of the Comuna 13.
