The ancient walled city of Cartagena, honored by UNESCO as a Historical Heritage of the Humanity, offers an array of plazas, churches and museums.
Founded in 1533, Cartagena was named after a town of the same name in Spain, which has home to many of the Spanish sailors who first discovered the city.
Cartagena was besieged by Pirates and at one time was taken by Francis Drake. Spain built defenses to protect the city, and many of the walls remain, giving the city the beauty visitors enjoy today
Cartagena played a major part in the emancipation of Colombia from Spain and was declared independent on November 11, 1810.
The city is the fifth largest in Colombia, with more than 1 million inhabitants, and is a popular destination for tourists from around the world.
