Carabobo Pedestrian Walkways To walk on the Carabobo Pedestrian Walkway is to walk through the most evocative of the Medellin of the beginning and middle of the 20th century: the Old City. Approximately 8 city blocks in length, the walkway extends its urban transformation ambit some 30 blocks around. The Carrera Carabobo, on which the walkway now traverses, has been a vital part of Medellín’s history, which is why along these 8 blocks one can find a series of buildings meriting heritage recognition for their great artistic and architectural value worthy of admiration. With its renovated and friendly looks the walkway pays homage to its illustrious hosts, which, standing proud along the visitor’s pathway, show their restored former grandeur. This roadway, until recently another chaotic downtown street, was revamped and appointed to the exclusive use of pedestrians and now shows its new and genial face to city and visitors alike. For locals and visitors the Carabobo Pedestrian Walkway is still a living roadway; a trip through the most traditional Medellin of always; to travel through art and culture. Besides its bustling business scene the roadway becomes stage for a varied artistic and cultural schedule for the enjoyment of all publics. Welcome!
