7 places to visit in Medellin
Next, you will see the route that we propose to get to know the eternal spring:
1. View of the city from above
The Medellín Metrocable was the first cable car in the world built as part of a mass transportation network. The first Metrocable line was inaugurated in 2004 from the Acevedo station to Santo Domingo.
Due to the hills in the city, to reach some places easily the best option is the metrocable. One of the most attractive connections is the connection to Juan XIII, to the west of the city. To reach the starting points of the trip you can move on the metro system stations. Then you can enjoy the magnificent views that you will get from the glass cabins.
2.Mercado del Río
Near Pueblito Paisa is one of the most interesting gastronomic proposals in Medellín: the “Mercado del Río”.
Eating in this market is quite an experience, you can enjoy a gastronomic world with your friends or with your family. In this space you can also find live music shows, wine tastings and special events.
It is located at Calle 24 #48-28 with hours from Monday 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. – Tuesdays and Sundays 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. – Wednesday 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. – Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.
3. Commune 13: graffiti tour
If you want to “parchar” (hang out) differently with your friends, we invite you to take the graffiti tour of Comuna 13, there you can learn about the stories from the past and present that make this community so special.
In this part of the city you will find art, culture, life; and above all a place that after been the most dangerous in the country, has now become the most visited place in Medellín due to its social transformation.
There you can enjoy the largest section of murals and graffiti in the city of Medellín, viewpoints of Comuna 13, neighborhoods as 20 de Julio, Independencia 1 and 2, galleries of local artists, the famous escalators of the commune, neon house where there is graffiti that lights up and can be seen in 3D and street dance or RAP shows.
Cheer up, it’s a “chimba” plan !
4. Tango and Gardel
Do you dare to do something different?
If you want a more relaxed “parche” but with a very powerful musical and cultural background, we suggest you visit an emblematic Tango site in Medellín.
Visit Plaza Gardel, on the outskirts of the Olaya Herrera airport, this was built in homage to the famous singer-songwriter from Rio de la Plata, Carlos Gardel, who died in a plane crash at this same airport in 1935. Then you can walk to the Casa Gardeliana museum, and finally to end this tour, listening to or dancing some tango in traditional places such as Salón Málaga or El Patio del Tango.
5. Barefoot Park
We have for you the perfect plan to relax.
The barefoot park is an ideal space to relax and get out of the monotony of everyday life, it is an oasis in the middle of the city. In this place you can walk a path of guaduas, relax your feet in the water wells and walk on the sand, connecting all your senses.
It is an ideal “parche” to do with family, partner, friends or your little furry pets. Around the park you can find restaurants and a large plaza where cultural events and activities are constantly shown for the enjoyment of all.
