Cartagena de Indias was founded on June 1, 1533 by Pedro Heredia and became prosperous with the exportation of gold, emeralds and other riches. Its beautiful fortifications are still solid today with the colonial architecture, government buildings and churches. Cartagena has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.
