Cartagena de Indias was founded in 1533 by the Spanish conqueror Pedro de Heredia. This charming Caribbean city was one of the most important parts of the Spanish Empire in America during the colonial era. Nowadays it is one of the most important and preferred destinations for travelers during their stay in Colombia. The city was Cartagena de Indias one of the most important and preferred destinations for travelers during their stay in Colombia. The city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984 due to its historical center, its history, and the set of fortresses, walls, and military infrastructure built by the Spanish to defend the city from the English pirates during the 17th and 18th centuries. In the diversity and cultural richness of the city the mixture of the indigenous and African cultures, as well as the Spanish influence is clearly evident.
During the colonial era, Cartagena was besieged by English pirates who tried to steal the gold that was sent to the port of the city to be shipped back to Spain. Due to this, the Castle of San Felipe and the walls that surround the old city were built. The Castle of San Felipe is in fact, one of the largest military fortresses built by the Spaniards in South America. During the wars of independence, this city was the most crucial in order to defeat the Spanish army and that is why Cartagena is called the “Heroic City”. Cartagena, therefore, preserved its architecture, walls, and history and became the most important tourist destination in the country. In the city, you can walk among the old streets, walk on the top of the walls, try the traditional cuisine, and listen to the musical rhythms known as Colombian Caribbean. You can also visit the modern area of Bocagrande and El Laguito. If you are a sun, sand, and beach enthusiast, you can visit the Rosario Islands. They are an archipelago of islands that belong to the city. There you can bathe in the warm and crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and enjoy beautiful, white sandy beaches.
