Street Art Tour
Walk through the quaint cobbled streets and discover Medellin’s hidden artistic gems accompanied by a professional local guide. Hi Medellin will show you some of the city’s most famous street art and you will be able to immerse yourself in the beauty and vibrancy of the local neighbourhoods, all from the comfort of an air conditioned car driven by one of our bilingual drivers.
Get to know the urban side of El Poblado, one of Medellin’s wealthiest and most happening neighborhoods, before heading Downtown to see some psychedelic street art that is sure to inspire you. Take a stroll along Medellin’s touristic Boulevard 70 and be amazed at the colors and technique of Colombian and international artists alike. Then leave the tourist traps and head to San Javier and Comuna 13, which are known to be some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the city. Don’t worry though – we’ve got your back! San Javier is one of the most densely populated areas in the city and Comuna 13 is an epicenter for violence and struggle for criminal control. Hi Medellin will give you the opportunity to see these neighborhoods and their street art from the safety of the Metrocable, the cable cars that go up to the top of the hill. Live the experience of the “real Medellin” in absolute safety and learn about the lives of people struggling against gangs and violence, and how they have used art as an escape or even a salvation.
This tour aims to change the conception of graffiti and street art being seen as vandalism; when done professionally or with purpose like in the pieces you will be shown on this tour, the streets become a living, breathing gallery and art becomes accessible to people of all social classes and walks of life.
Don’t forget to bring your camera on this unmissable tour!
