Geography of Cartagena
"Cartagena" was founded by Pedro de Heredia in 1533 and became a storage point for treasure awaiting shipment to Spain. For more than 200 years it was periodically attacked by pirates and by English and French buccaneers. The city declared its independence from Spain in 1811 and was set up as an independent republic; it was captured by Spanish forces in 1815 after a long, bloody siege. The Spanish were expelled in 1821, and the city became part of Colombia.
