Photographer's Note

The city of Cartagena, Colombia, seen from the walkway going to the top of the Barajas Fortress. Barajas was built to protect the city from raiding pirates. In colonial times, Cartagena was a city of great wealth, since most of the stolen Inca gold sent back to Spain was shipped out of this city. There was a series of several forts around Cartagena, with Barajas being the largest. In fact, it was the largest fort the Spanish built in the New World.
