Pablo Escobar Gaviria was born in Rio Negro but lived most of his life in Medellin, both in the Antioquia region. That’s why the Pablo Escobar tour is in Medellin, in the city you can still find a lot of places that are the result of Pablo’s doing. The opinions about Pablo Escobar are divided in Medellin. Most of the people have experienced tragic moments relating to Pablo Escobar. He was “The king of cocaine” and the world’s most biggest and important drug dealer, responsible of death and violence everywhere in Colombia. He was also cherished by others who saw him as a charitable human. The drug boss(el patron) ruled under his motto plata o plomo, Spanish for silver or lead.(referring to take money or get a bullet). To many of the city's poorest people, Escobar whom they called Don Pablo was nothing short of El Robin Hood Paisa in the flesh, a reputation he enjoys among some to this day. Paisa is a region formed by the departments of Antioquia, Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío. This Extended Pablo Escobar tour in Medellin is a great way to learn more about the life of Pablo Escobar and understand the history that took place.
