Panoramic view of Comuna 13
Comuna 13 is an area in Medellin, that was once plagued with vilence. In the 1980s and 90s, was plagued by violence between drug traffickers and paramilitary groups, while poverty ostracized large segments of the community.
Now the colorful district, is part of an altogether brighter picture. A rigorous peace effort has quelled the armed conflict, while a recent report ranked it as the fastest-growing metropolitan economy in Latin America.
