Pablo Escobar tour - it is just history
It is just history, we do not glorify. This is private tour, beyond visiting the iconic places in the life of the drug lord, we focus on discussing different points of view around the country and the problems related to drug trafficking. Our purpose is the understanding of such scourge and its impact in our country, and the process Medellín has gone through in order to become an innovative and safer city. We do not glorify Pablo or see him as a hero, we simply seek to understand the political, social and economic context of that time.
From the place where you are staying, we go to:
- The cemetery (where we will discuss on his family and the closest people)
- The memorial park (where we will talk a little about some versions and points of view around Pablo).
- The neighborhood (donated in the early 80´ prior to his political campaign)
- Roof and house where he died
Optionally we can stop to grab some snacks
