Puerto Colombia

 

 

Since its founding in 1893 and until the opening of Bocas de Ceniza in 1936, the port of Puerto Colombia, built by the Cuban engineer Francisco Javier Cisneros, was the main maritime terminal in the country, partly thanks to its connection with the railroad. Part of that history can be relived in this town near Barranquilla.
