Cartagena de Indias is a coastal city that played a very significant role in Colombia’s independence from Spain. The city also emerged as a major point of entry for African slaves. In fact, many say that the ancestors of all of Spanish South America’s black populations likely arrived through Cartagena. The architecture, music, language, food, and dances within its historic walled city is a melting pot of Spanish, Indigenous, and African culture. It is an incredible place to understand Afro-latino history and resistance to slavery & Spanish colonization. Of course, its beaches are wonderful too!
2019 春假在卡塔赫纳市游了一个星期，跟当地人学了很多东西。今天的cartagena人文环境是原住，非洲，和西班牙民族文化融合形成一种独特的新文化。到cartagena，会了解拉美黑人对西班牙殖民扩张几百年的抵抗力量。(please correct me if there are any mistakes, thank you ☺)
