Medellin lived violent times when the drug smugglers like Pablo Escobar got the control of the city during the 80's and when the guerrillas and paramilitaries groups fought the worst urban armed conflict in Colombia history during the 90's. In less than 20 years this city managed to get over the violence and became a symbol of transformation and innovation.
