Abstract

Back in the early 1990s, Medellín was considered the most dangerous city in the world. Pablo Escobar and the “Cartel of Medellín” controlled vast parts of the international cocaine traffic. Thus, the reign of “El Patrón” came to its end and just a few years later Medellín began to change when local politicians started to invest heavily in infrastructure and public education. Nevertheless, the transformation of Medellín is an ongoing process of impressive social and urban change you witness on this tour.

Your private expert guide provides insider information on the historical dimension of the phenomenon of Pablo Escobar and you will obtain a deeper understanding of the unique history of Medellín and the uniqueness of its transformation.
