Full description
This 3-hour tour takes you back in time to 3 important places in the life of Pablo Escobar: the Monaco Building, which was one of his residences; the house where he was killed; and the cemetery where he was buried.

As the richest man in the world in 1975, Pablo Escobar indulged in expensive cars, houses and airplanes, and still had enough money to ensure he was well liked by millions of people.

An example of Escobar’s wealth is his imposing residence in the El Poblado neighborhood, where the tour begins.

Learn about Escobar’s extensive cocaine operation, and his other residences, including Hacienda Napoles, which is now a theme park. During his life it was a luxurious estate that even featured a private zoo.

See the house where Escobar was killed. Hiding in his aunt’s house he was tracked down and shot dead when he attempted to escape from the rooftop.

At the end of the tour you’ll visit Escobar’s burial place in the south of Medellín, not far from the neighborhood of Envigado where he grew up.
