During the Spanish Inquisition, Cartagena was an important city and it continues to be an important city due to its tourism industry. The city offers many tourist attractions and the walled city was even declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Cartagena’s climate is hot and breezy and the rainy season is generally in May/June and October/November. The economy is dependent on the maritime and petrochemical industries, as well as tourism.
