Urban Green Tour
The Urban Green Tour is part of Medellín´s continued focus convert once dangerous, or unfit, areas into works of art. This tour passes through the recently finished Jardín Circunvalar, which is located in the mountainous Enciso neighborhood, near the metrocable station, Tres Esquinas.
