Metrocable

Medellin, Colombia

The Basics

Due to its cultural significance, Metrocable is a staple of Medellin sightseeing tours. Tours of Comuna 13—a formerly dangerous neighborhood that was transformed by street art and electric escalators—typically include a ride on the Metrocable and reveal some of the city’s best graffiti, which can be difficult to find due to its transient nature. Rather than transporting you by car, many sightseeing tours use the Metrocable and interlinking metro to offer a glimpse of local life in Medellin.
