Day 6 - Medelin - Tour of Comuna 13, street art

Comuna 13 is one of the 16 districts based in the city of Medellín. It began to be populated in the 1930s and 40s. By the 1970´s a large number that arrived there, were fleeing the violence of different sectors of Colombia. In past times, the area became one of the most dangerous in the country, since the armed groups that took over control of the sector were predominant and extremely powerful, and they completely ran the territory. For example: FARC, ELN, PARAMILITARES, CAP. Historically it created massive conflicts and a lot of suffering through their recruitments, their murders, extortions, kidnappings and military operations, in which many injustices were committed, including deaths, disappearances and innocent people being put in jail. But LA COMUNA 13 continued forward, and through clever social work projects by different groups, artistic groups, and individuals.This community holds about 160,000 inhabitants and recently became the most touristic sector of Medellín as well as an international reference in Colombia. Now people can safely enjoy the Comuna 13 Graffiti Tour and gain an important background to their visit, covering both its history and the street culture.
