A welcoming city transformed by social innovation.
The people of Medellín always leave a lasting impression on its visitors, as they are as warm as its weather. Located in a valley that presents a stunning view of mountains and biodiversity, the ‘City of Eternal Spring’ hosts more than four thousand species of flora, which are the basis for the Flower Fair yearly celebrations. The hard-working and creative mindset of the ‘paisa’ community makes Medellín a key center of innovation in Colombia, as seen in its modern transport systems, sustainable buildings, and educational centers like Parque Explora, the Orchidarium, and many iconic libraries.
As the second biggest city in the country, there’s plenty to do in Medellín, especially in the artistic world, which gained traction during and after the difficulties of the drug war and transformed many districts through graffiti, reggaeton, fashion design, and dance. Throughout its hills, museums, restaurants, nightclubs, and public places constantly serve as scenarios to promote the local culture, resonating with a city proud of its traditions that also embraces new opportunities for growth and development.
