To live well in a city one needs to know the general layout, what is available and where things are. This page will initially list some resources and eventually be divided up into sub-pages for convenience.
Medellin has a multitude of neighborhoods. In Spanish these are called barrios. Knowing where they are is very important as people will casually say, “Oh, that’s over in Rosales.” This as if you knew where Rosales is located. This map shows the location of the barrios and the income strata to which they have been assigned. The strata are important as they may provide information about costs, taxes and to some extent security considerations.
