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

The historic center of Medellín is the best living example we have to show what we were and who we are. Come with us and discover the stories of its streets!

Tour Description

We will immerse ourselves among the streets of Medellín and its people to understand the history, development, conflict and the social commitment of an inclusive and innovative city!

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, and live in the city of "Eternal Spring", 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".

During the tour, we will move between passages, we will cross the famous Junin street, and we will discover the essence of the center of Medellín. Do not miss our unique and original tour where we continue to write history together!
