Everything you need to know about the violence dynamics in Medellín before, during and after the Cartel (this is NOT a Pablo Escobar tour) and the struggle of the people to survive this and create a better future!

Tour Description

Starting at Parque San Antonio through downtown and finishing at Museo Casa de la Memoria, you will delve into that particularity of the city, while you discover its stories and get to know its main actors.

You will learn about the changes that the violence there has had from 1982 to 2015, delving into what happened after the Medellín Cartel with "Donbernabilidad" and how that past is present today.

You will delve into the multiple characters and institutions that have acted in this context of war, peace and resistance, discussing their motivations, practices and transformations.
