(CNN) -- The former safe house of one of the world's most powerful and deadly drug lords seems like an average living space at first glance.

There's even a school across the street.

But inside the home is an extensive network of hatches, tunnels and reinforced steel doors -- all designed to lead Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman to safety and away from authorities.

Guzman was arrested earlier this month in what was called “a landmark achievement, and a victory for the citizens of both Mexico and the United States.”

He'd alluded capture for more than a dozen years.

To view his extensive safe house set-up, watch the video player above.
