From the food market we take the tramway. This is actually our third tram in Medellin, the first one was pulled by mules in 1887.

This tram was finished in 2015 and since then has brought a huge benefit to the communities in the east sector of Medellin.

After our 4.3 km ride in the tram, we reach the most recent aerial car line to fly over hundreds of houses.

Throughout the flight your guide will talk about displaced settlements in Medellin and Colombia as well as how our social and health care system work to have more context about Medellin.

This is the perfect scene to explain to you the history of our downtown: its golden age, decadence and current programs to revive it.

Stop At: Centro Comercial Palacio Nacional, Cra. 52 #48-45, Medellin Colombia

Once the Medellin´s Courthouse, Palacio Nacional is now the most unusual shopping mall in the city and probably in the world.

The guide (Andres) picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back afterwards. In between was 4 and half hours of tour on foot, in vehicle, in trams and cable cars covering much of the interesting parts of Medellin. Well worth doing if you only have a couple of days in the city
