Delve into the legend of the world's most famous drug lord with this fantastic tour of the locations that marked Pablo Escobar's life in Medellin.

Delve into the legend of the world's most famous drug lord with this fantastic tour of the locations that marked Pablo Escobar's life in Medellin.

Pablo Escobar Tour

Our Pablo Escobar tour starts at pretty El Poblado Park. From here we head to the Monaco Building, the former residence of the famous leader of the Medellin cartel. We'll hear about some of the episodes that marked the organization's struggle for control of drug trafficking. Their main rival, the Cali cartel, perpetrated an attack with a car bomb right next to this building. The main objective was to eliminate Pablo Escobar, but that day neither he nor any member of his family was in the block of apartments.

Next, we visit the Montesacro cemetery, where Pablo Escobar's grave is the most visited in the entire cemetery. There, we'll learn some anecdotes that have served as inspiration for the TV series Narcos.

We continue the tour visiting the iconic Barrio Pablo Escobar. In 1983, 'El Patrón' decided to launch his political career in order to have control over the laws of the country but had the complex task of cleaning up his image. The press was pointing to Escobar as a dangerous drug trafficker. Pablo decided to carry out various charitable works along these streets. We'll tell you his whole story!

Pablo Escobar's reign ended in 1993. We'll visit the building where he died and listen to the various hypotheses that exist about his death: Did he commit suicide? Was he executed by the United States? By Colombian forces? Was he betrayed by those he believed to be loyal?

The tour will end at the starting point.
