"METRO VIEW OF CITY" Medellín Things to Do Tip by swesn

Medellín Things to Do: 79 reviews and 174 photos

A lovely way for an orientation tour of Medellin is to take the metro.

The metro is entirely on overhead structures (not underground) so you have a great view of the city as the metro zips by. The stations are very clean as you can always spot a cleaner mopping and mopping away.

If you arrive at the Northern Bus Terminal, you can easily reach the city centre as the terminal is connected to Caribe metro station.

From Universitario metro station, you can see the spacious university grounds, a park and the Botanic Garden. Look east from Hospital metro station and you might be able to see the San Pedro Cemetery.

Also from a metro station (sorry, I forgot which one... might be San Antonio), you can spot the wall of a building which was painted to resemble the slum areas up the hills in the distance. Clever.

From Alpujarra metro station, look to the west and you will see a series of pointy columns on a square.

More about these sights later.
