Really artsy area with some of the most amazing street art displays in the world...would not recommend going to this area without a tour guide.

We visited the escaleras electricas in the Free Graffiti Walking tour and learned all about their history and construction. It’s a very interesting story and it’s impressive to go up the mountain with the escaleras electricas! A MUST-DO in Medellín

The escalators help people move to and from the high hilly residential areas to descend to jobs in the city proper. Along the way one can see some of the urban murals created by young men in Comuna 13, an area considered 2 on a...More

Yes,I believe they are open every day. The escaleras are used by the residents to access their homes located in a hilly area. During my visit some sections were closed for repairs so I used the steps, not the escalator.
