artagena, the capital of the Bolívar Department, is one of the most historical cities in the Caribbean. The Caribbean region with today's Cartagena was once known as Puerto Hormiga Culture as the first documented human community. Cartagena (in Spanish: Cartagena de Indias) was named after the Spanish city of Cartagena, which has got its name after Cartagena in Tunisia, where I visited the remains of the old city some years ago, so that fact was very interesting to me. Cartagena was founded in 1533, later on the city was attracted by pirates and today it is known also as The Magic City. Its first inhabitants were Spanish immigrants, who came there mostly because of the gold found in the tombs of the culture, known as the Sinú.
