Some facts about Medellín

Medellín, recipient of the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize 2016

With almost 4 million inhabitants in its metropolitan area, Medellín is the second largest city in Colombia.

Ravaged by violence and drug-trafficking in the end of the 20th Century, it is now globally recognized for its resilience and capacity for achieving urban transformation. 

It was awarded the Lee Kwan Yew World City Prize in 2016 or its success in overcoming challenges of uncontrolled urban expansion and violence due to social inequalities.
