In the late 1800s the mining industry made a handful of people very rich and this is evident in the historic centre of Cartagena and nearby La Unión. Cartagena’s centre needed rebuilding in the late-19th century, after a federalist insurrection in 1874 wiped out half the city and towards the end of the century some gorgeous art nouveau buildings were constructed. You could find some of the best ones such as the Palacio Pedreño, the Casino de Cartagena, the Casa Cervantes, the Palacio de Aguirre and the Gran Hotel by taking a walking tour of Cartagena.
