Comuna 13 is one of the 16 comunas of Medellin. A comuna is basically equivalent to a district; it is just a division of this beautiful city.
Comuna 13 is special because it was born with a lot of problems that the government neglected to take care of for a long time.
We had a lot of violence around this area, but now thanks to some investments from the goverment, but mostly thanks to people in the community, the place has changed for good. This is a place with a million colors and people that will make you feel like that you are part of this community.
Comuna 13 is a magical place that provokes many emotions, from which those who visit can learn many things, such as how to work alongside others to make dreams a reality and overcome daunting problems even without sufficient resources. Comuna 13 endured a lot of violence for many years; however, thanks to the fight put up by our community, it has experienced many positive changes and has since been able to leave the violence in the past. Currently, tourism has taken off in comuna 13, creating a limitless number of possibilities for everyone in the community.
This is the place where we work mostly. Be part of this.
