A super-maximum security or administrative maximum prison is a “control-unit” prison, or a unit within prisons. It presents the most secure level of custody in the prison system. In America, there is only one Supermax prison, located in Florence, Colorado.

Considered to be an escape-proof prison, it usually houses the most notorious criminals in a country. Now, the Supermax in Colorado will house the drug kingpin El Chapo.

The drug kingpin was previously in another prison, but he was moved to Colorado for security reasons. Inmates in the Supermax spend 23 hours a day in solitary confinement. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Here is where El Chapo will spend his life sentence.
