In 1979, Pablo Escobar spent around $63 million for his massive 5,000-acre estate. The property had 24 artificial lakes, an airstrip, helipads, a swimming pool, a 500-seat bullfighting arena, life-size concrete dinosaurs Escobar built for his son, and a private zoo.
Narcos was filmed at a separate location because the actual Hacienda Napoles was stripped apart by treasure seekers. After his death, the Colombian government ceded the retreat and valued it at $2.23 million. In 2014, a private company invested $10 million to restore the property and transform it into a theme park — but due to poor construction and serious damage to the buildings, the estate remains abandoned.
