Cartagena

 

When the city of Cartagena de Indias was founded, the Zenú indians still recalled the golden days when they dominated and developed a vast area of the Caribbean plains. Zenú wealth contributed to the importance of Cartagena as a centre during Spanish Colonial times and today it is a worldwide tourist jewel. The Zenú Gold Museum is in the centre of the walled city, opposite the former Inquisition Palace.
