Barranquilla

The first two photos are a view of northern Barranquilla from the sea. Barranquilla, the fourth largest city in Colombia is not a coastal city, yet as you can see very close to the Caribbean. The north side of Barranquilla is also the better part town where much of the building boom over the last 10-plus year has concentrated. The city is adjacent to the east side of the Magdalena River which crosses almost 1,000 miles through Colombia. The third and fourth photos are of the south of Barranquilla on a rare crystal clear day where you can also see the Magdalena River. The next five photos are from downtown Barranquilla near the river on another infrequent clear day. The next two photos are from the Pumarejo Bridge which crosses the Magdalena towards Santa Marta showing the port and industrial sectors. The next photo is a rare view of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta from Barranquilla which is only about an hour away, yet rarely seen due to haze or cloud cover. The next four photos are of the north of the city where most of the highrises are located. The next four photos are from the mouth of the Magdalena River on a strip of land that extends to where the river meets the sea. If you use the rail cart, which takes you close to the tip, it is best to sit on the opposite end of the loud and smoky motor. The next two photos are from a walkway being developed called, Malecon. The next four photos are a vista of the eastern end of the city. The next photo is of the Salgar Castle northeast of the city. The remaining photos are examples of architectures and churches of Barranquilla.
