Laureles neighborhood Background And Highlights

The Laureles neighborhood in Medellin is a place with a rich history dating back to the 20th century. Its art deco-influenced architecture, wide tree-lined streets, and its importance as a commercial, residential, and gastronomic center make it a fascinating place to explore and enjoy urban life in the city.

The Laureles neighborhood, initially called “The Employee’s City” was built by the Employees’ Cooperative for the working class; its initial layout was designed by Pedro Nel Gómez in 1943, who took the streets of Paris as a model with its parks, traffic circles, circular and diagonal avenues.

Laureles: A place to Eat, Drink & Dance!

If any area in the city has gained popularity in the city, especially due to its growing gastronomic offer, this is Laureles, a place full of tourist corridors, bars, and restaurants of all kinds. Walk through its streets with lots of trees and a delightful breeze. Keep in mind that Laureles is considered one of the most traditional neighborhoods in western Medellin, where you can still appreciate the architecture of the 1950’s in one-story houses with several rooms, patios, and gardens.

These houses coexist with cafes, bars, markets, and restaurants of all kinds that have notably diversified the gastronomic and nightlife offerings in this sector of the city.
