The Metro de Medellín is an urban train that crosses the Metropolitan Area of Medellín from North to South and from Centre to West. As one of the first experiences of modern mass transportation in Colombia, the Metro of Medellín is a product of the urban planning of the Antioquia. The city of Medellín and its urban complex (ten cities in the Aburrá Valley), is a city with relatively recent industrial development that started in the 1930’s. The streetcar (tranvía) at the beginning of the 20th Century can be considered as predecessor of the 21st century Metro of Medellín. The company known in Spanish as Empresa de Transporte Masivo del Valle de Aburrá – Metro de Medellín Ltda was created on May 31, 1979. – Wikipedia

The Metro includes several connections with Metrocable, a cable car network that enables residents to climb the valley walls outside of the city center. It’s also a fun ride for tourists, providing panoramic views of the Medellin.
