They Look Like Favelas

This picture was taken in Medellin, Colombia in a district named La Comuna 13. Once notoriously the most dangerous area in Medellin, La Comuna 13 has undergone drastic development and transformation, transitioning it into a popular tourist location. La Comuna 13, which is part of a larger neighborhood known as San Javier, endured much destruction from the guerrillas, anarchist groups, and the infamous Medellin cartel.
