Before you even get to the escalators, you have to walk up a pretty steep hill....murals/graffiti very good, and the area is crowded with tourists. Street vendors, performers (some not so great) all competing for a bit of cash. Recommend taking a tour here as they will explain the history and some of the murals.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes this place is a perfect metaphor for modern Medellin. Vibrant with street art and escalators this barrio has to be seen to be believed. I travelled solo and didn't book a tour. Its about a 30 minute walk from the metro station (turn left when exiting) to the bottom of the first escalator. Plenty of eating places and cafes to refuel at when needed. A perfect insight into what can be achieved with positive thinking and artistic vision.

Once inspirational, Comuna 13 now disrespects the great street art that helped put the barrio on the road to recovery years ago. I have visited the area for years and recently was appalled to see how badly it has deteriorated in just the last couple years. The art is now obscured and in some cases damaged by wall to wall vendors, motorcycles snd garbage bags piled up against it. Much of it is fading and chipping away, with no maintenance and very little new art materializing. The area has taken on a tacky, overwhelmingly commercial vibe, leaving the art as merely incidental, if not entirely ignored. My advice is to skip this “ attraction” until/unless it revives its remarkable roots.

For me, a visit to the Comuna 13 is a must when visiting Medellin. The whole place is a lesson in redemption and change. These paisas were incredibly creative when planning this project. You will enjoy music, food and art. It's a party atmosphere!

I found the half day we spent in Communa 13 incredibly interesting and rewarding. We had a guided tour of tge Commuba and learned a lot about it's history.
The escalators are a brilliant way to explore the area and have really opened up the communa to visitors and the rest of the city.
If you told ne before I went that a set of escalators would be one of the highlights of my tine in Medellin, I'd have laughed! But they were!
The place is so vibrant, so colourful, so energetic, and the escalators have had a huge effect on the place.
Amazing views of the city and a great place to visit.

This is now a busy tourist spot - too busy at weekends I suspect. Old favela (v dangerous) now transformed with souvenir shops, cafes and break dancing kids.
This is a dramatic representation of the change in Medellin over a very few years.

You don't have to leave Medellin. I suggest going with a guide who can give you some of the history surrunding Comuna 13. Great views as you ascend. Good way to spend a few hours. Recommend trying of the local food vendors. You won't believe how much food you get for $3...and delicous.

We all really enjoyed the visit here. We found a guide outside the metro station (Mel) and she did a really great job. She took us to a great but inexpensive place to eat, found us a place to sit and have a beer while we waited out a rainstorm, and gave us a very good tour. The art is cool and the history interesting.

Many of the shops and food vendors were blasting their music at high volume levels. It spoiled the atmosphere, so I left sooner than I otherwise would have.

Also, the vendors should show their prices. I don't want to bargain with a vendor in a language I don't speak or understand.
