Get to know one of the most important and relevant cultures in the history of our country: the paisas!

We will immerse ourselves among its streets and its people to understand the history, development, conflict and the social commitment of an inclusive and innovative Medellin! From the hand of local "Paisas" guides you will understand how we reverted our dark and violent past, product of the drug trafficking of the 80's and 90's, into a bright future that made us stronger thanks to the collective resilient effort and social investment that today allows us to walk, visit and live in the city of "Eternal Spring". In this guided tour we will visit the unmissable places of the city such as the "Plaza de Botero" and "La Libertad", "Parque de las Luces" and "Los Pies Descalzos"; we will move between passages, we will cross the famous Junin street and we will discover the essence of the center of Medellín.

We will go up in Metro Cable to a height of 300 meters to obtain the best panoramic view of the city (in our opinion) and we will go down to have a "tinto" or Pola, and share the stories of musicians, mothers and writers who live a new happy imaginary of their city.
