Medellín, Colombia

Medellín is considered the commercial, industrial and technological development epicenter of Colombia, and is located in the Central Cordillera, one of the three branches of the most important mountain chain in Latin America, the Andes Mountains, which makes it a city located in a region surrounded by mountains and nature.

Medellín has around 2,500,000 inhabitants, which together with the nine municipalities in its metropolitan area add up to almost 3,800,000, all of them characterized by being part of a hospitable culture, always friendly and with a high sense of belonging to the city.

Medellín is known as one of the most resilient cities in the world. Although it became, in the eighties and nineties, one of the most violent cities in the world, today it is recognized for its transformation and social innovation.
