On our Free Peace & War in Colombia Tour, we will unravel the violent history of the nation, from its bloody origins in the Independence War, through its fratricidal conflicts in the 19th century, in which the tension between the liberals and the conservatives lead to as many as nine great national wars, continuing to the second half of the 20th century, when guerrillas and narcos gave Colombia the infamous title as the most violent country in the world.
