Pablo Escobar tour and Colombian history (just history, we don't glorify)

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 Cathedral (a former customized and luxury jail)
- The cemetery (where we will discuss on his family and the closest people)
- The memorial square (where we will talk a little about some versions and points of view around Pablo).

Optionally we can stop to grab some snacks
