What you'll do

Medellin, a city that until a few years ago nobody recommended, much less thought to visit, is today a destination recommended by The New York Times and National Geographic, for being a city that has been reinventing itself from an extremely violent past, to being today one of the leading cities in terms of urban planning and social innovation.

In this ONLINE EXPERIENCE we will redefine the way to discover a city and it's culture; you will learn which are the most relevant places in Medellin and also you will be fully prepared to move as a local when you decide to visit our city.

To develop our dynamic, we will use a map of Medellin as a board game, where you will find all the public transport lines with their respective stops drawn. We will use photographs to take a virtual tour, in which YOU will be in charge of navigating, moving around the city and discovering each of the places that marked different events in the history of Medellin.

We are a great team made up of two brothers, we are Sebastian and Julian, both born and raised in Medellin. I'm 28 years old, I'm an architect, urban planner and passionate about Medellin, with my brother we have been fortunate to experience first hand the fascinating transformation of our city and go through all it's neighborhoods, that until a few years ago it was impossible to access. It's incredible to see how Medellin went from being the most violent city worldwide in 1991, to being today one of the reference cities in terms of urban planning and social innovation worldwide.

In the last two years we have received more than 2000 people in the experiences that we develop, always obtaining very good ratings, now through technology, we want to reach more places and show the inspiring history of Medellin.
