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.
