In the history of criminal activities one name stands out, Pablo Escobar, the man infamous for large-scale drug trafficking. The Colombian drug dealer earned many titles during his reign “The King Of Cocaine”, “The Tsar of Cocaine”, “The Godfather”, and “The Magician”. In his heyday, he had a net worth of $30 billion dollars ($56 billion today), along with various multi-million-dollar mansions all around the world.

One of his main houses was in Medellín, Colombia, the region where he grew up. This huge mansion has since become ruins, but that hasn’t stopped people from wanting to visit El Patrón’s real-estate. In fact, his place has now been turned into a paintball venue where you can play with your friends. You can have a tour around Escobar’s house, visit the apartment where he hid his family, and his private jail called ‘La Catedral’ which he built for himself (it had a casino, a nightclub, and a spa).
