Barranquilla, an industrial, portuary, and special district, is a city and municipality located in northern Colombia by the Caribbean Sea. The capital of the Atlántico Department, it is the largest industrial city and port in the Colombian Caribbean region, and the fourth largest city in Colombia. It lies strategically by the delta of the Magdalena River, serving as port for river and maritime transportation. It is also known as the cradle of Colombian aviation and carnival

It is known as Colombia's Golden Gate (Spanish: La Puerta de Oro de Colombia) as well as La Arenosa (the Sandy City). While the city bears no established record of its foundation, its settlement or foundation can be traced back to at least 1629. However, its residents traditionally have come to commemorate the city's "birthday" as the date when Barranquilla was legally established as a village, April 7, 1813. By 1834 Barranquilla had a population of 11,212 (official census), which made it slightly smaller than Santa Marta and not quite half the size of Cartagena.[3] As Barranquilla became an important port, it also served as a haven for immigrants from Europe during World War I and World War II, and for different waves of immigrants from the Middle East and Asia.

Barranquilla was Colombia's first port[citation needed] and is proud of its level of industrialization and modernity, which earned it the name of Colombia's Golden Gate. The first airport in South America was also built in Barranquilla, and the world's second oldest commercial airline doing business today was founded there, SCADTA (now known as Avianca). The Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport, the first airport built in South America (1919), is served by domestic and international flights.

In the 1940s, Barranquilla was the second largest city in Colombia and one of the most modern cities on the Caribbean and South America, but sadly later local administrations, given to widespread corruption, brought about a decline in the standard of living.

esta imagen muestra el gran potencial del centro de Barranquilla, usemos un poco la imaginación, quitemos todos esos horribles estorbos (chazas, clables electricos, anuncios publicitarios...) ampliamos los andenes, un poquito de pintura aquí y allá y presto... una calle de ensueño.

Muy buenas fotos Killatown, realmente pienso que las fotos no le hacen honor a la ciudad esta es mucho mejor en vivo y en directo. B/quilla es mejor vivirla y gozarla, el ambiente y la gente es de lo mejor. Chevere como se escribe B/quilla en Chino.

nice city - I like that gothic cathedral and those mausoleums too.
those colonial buildings are really good and the new midrise buildings are not bad.
