Without a doubt, one of the most controversial figures of the 1970’s, 1980’s, and the 1990’s was Pablo Escobar. He was well known for his illegal activities, and he peaked when he set himself as the head of the infamous Medellin Cartel. He was ruthless, a smuggler, and yet… also a sort of man of the people. He was known by the locals as a sort of “Robin Hood” figure, which adds to his complexity as a person. A man who did so much we consider bad, also happened to do a bit of good.
But, you don’t get to the top of the Medellin Cartel without spending a bit on yourself. After all, Escobar’s worth was estimated at 30 billion dollars at its peak, and it’s also well documented that he would have to bury his money, or hide it in the walls of his homes, just so that he could contain all of it. And that brings us to one of his most elusive, secret, and luxurious homes. Today, we are taking a look at the beautiful property that once acted as Escobar’s party home.
