Photographer's Note

In August of 1815 started one of the most cruel episodes suffered by the people of Cartagena. During 105 days they held on to an enclosure, by land and sea, managed by Spanish troops to reconquer this land, which was declared independent in 1811. The city was attacked by cannons and the entrance of food and water for the natives was blocked. The people resisted bravely to the attacks and hunger, until the final takeover of Cartagena, in December. This historic fact gave the city the qualificative of "The Heroic".
