“I had never done the tour. Today I had nothing to do and we took the opportunity to come,” said the singer-songwriter.

Each street brought with it a different chapter that began with two local artists who managed to sing snippets of their hits with Turizo with an almost immediate connection that also became apparent when he entered a passageway that welcomes visitors with the message “Welcome to 13”, next to which he posed to immortalize his visit.

There he was greeted by colorful graffiti and break dancing in a dance show that he enjoyed in the front row and then mixed with the members of an artistic collective that earns a living performing before the tourists who come to this commune every day.
