A seaport with a great history


Cartagena de Indias was one of the most popular seaports in America during the Spanish viceregal era. Following its independence in 1811, Cartagena de Indias lost its relevance, but little by little it rose again and became one of the most important seaports in Colombia, in the Caribbean and in the world, as well as a very popular tourist destination.

Independence Festival


Every 11th of November Colombia celebrates its national holiday and the city celebrates the so-called "Fiestas de Independencia", a four-day festival. This commemorates the day it achieved independence from Spain at the beginning of the 19th century. From this day on, Cartagena de Indias kept a great part of its Spanish artistic and cultural heritage, preserving its historic centre and developing its urban area.
