colonial cartagena

Cartagena De Indias Cathedral / Cartagena, Colombia
Located on the Plaza de Bolívar, the main cathedral of Cartagena is a beautiful example of Latin American colonial architecture - having been built in the late 16th century. The city of Cartagena De Indias was discovered by the Spanish in the early 16th century and immediately grew into a strategically located port for shipping and slave trade.
