Comuna 13: History made Graffiti

Colombia is a country of resilience and the best place to attribute it is Comuna 13. There tourists get the opportunity to see how art is tangled with the history of a neighborhood far from the rich areas of Medellin, where most tourists stay during their travels.

The neighborhood is hidden in the mountains of Medellín, a place where a few years ago was the most dangerous area in Medellín. And since Medellin was also once known as the most dangerous city in the world, saying that Comuna 13 was difficult is a euphemism.
