  • Visit Escobar's grave and the place where he was killed
  • Explore the site of his former residence and the prison he built for himself

Description

Learn about the dark times suffered by Medellín at the time of Pablo Escobar Gaviria. Gain an understanding of the difficulties, which both the city and its inhabitants strove to overcome to become an example of resilience. Discover the troubled past of the city, and the painful and bloody legacy left behind by the famed drug trafficker. Start the tour in the El Poblado neighborhood, visiting the new Parque de la Memoria, a former Monaco building which was demolished on February 22, 2019 to make way for a renewed space that aims to reconstruct the area's history through art and culture, vindicating the city of its unfortunate reputation of a place of drug trafficking. Then, visit the ruins of the Cathedral Prison, located in the municipality of Envigado, which Escobar built through an agreement with the then-government. After, continue to the grave where the remains of this dark character rest in perpetuity. Finally, arrive to the west of the city and witness the house where he died in its dilapidated state. You can also opt to include a visit to Comuna 13, an area with the most graffiti in Medellin and the largest open-air gallery in Latin America.
