Founded on June 1, 1533 by Spanish commander Pedro de Heredia, and named after the town in Spain where most of his sailors had resided, Cartagena has a rich history as one of the most famous port towns ever. Most well-known of all are the 11 kilometers of walls surrounding the city, built across 200 years during the 17th Century by European engineers to protect against inevitable attacks by pirates and corsairs.

Check out some of the most popular historical attractions below and if you’re interested, give our city concierge a call and we’ll setup a tour for you.
