Since a long time ago, Comuna 13 in Medellín was regarded as a restricted zone. A few years ago, there was a battle going on between members of the drug gangs and the police, and bullets were flying back and forth between them. In particular, the Medellín Cartel, which has been widely recognised through the popular television series Narcos, is partially accountable for a significant amount of violence that has occurred in this particular region of the city.
But during the past few years, Comuna 13 and Colombia as a whole have seen significant transformations. The neighbourhood that was once considered to be the most hazardous in the city, Comuna 13, has evolved into one of the most popular tourist destinations in this country.
At this time, Comuna 13 is opening its doors to an increasing number of tourists, who are able to see firsthand the quick transformation that has taken place from what was once the most dangerous district to what was once the most dangerous Want to experience the city. In addition, we went on a tour to Comuna 13, where we were able to observe the vibrant graffiti and have a better understanding of the community’s transformation.
