En junio, báñate en el trocito de Caribe que baña la costa norte de Colombia. Cartagena, una preciosa ciudad amurallada situada allí, fue fundada en 1533 por Pedro de Heredia y se le dio el mismo nombre que ostentaba el puerto español de Murcia. La ciudad fue amurallada rápidamente para intentar protegerla de los saqueos de piratas ingleses, holandeses y franceses; hoy, la muralla es una insignia de Cartagena. Pasea por el barrio viejo y disfruta de sus casas y calles coloridas. No dejes de preguntar por la dirección de Gabriel García Márquez: el Nobel de literatura de 1982 vivió aquí muchos años, y retrató uno de sus rincones en su conocida obra “El amor en los tiempos del cólera”.

In June, go swim in the Caribbean sea, right off Colombia’s northern coast. Cartagena, a beautiful walled town in the area, was founded by Pedro de Heredia in 1533 and named after a harbour in Murcia, Spain. The city was immediately walled off in an attempt to safeguard it from English, Dutch and French pirates; nowadays, the wall is Cartagena’s trademark. Take a walk through the old district and enjoy its colourful streets and houses. Do not forget to enquire about Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s address; The author who won the Nobel price in Literature in 1982 lived here for many years, and depicted one of its corners in his renowned work Love In The Times Of Cholera.

The secret history of Costaguana

ICLL Podcast series: New Episode (in English)

Book launch

London 1903, and Colombian José Altamirano has just arrived from a place he wishes to forget, shouldering a past he regrets and more guilt than anyone can carry.

He could have stopped the cession of the Panama territory, but chose not to. He then realises that Joseph Conrad is beginning to publish Nostromo, recounting a story he once related to him, and that he is being marginalised and virtually erased from that history.

Juan Gabriel Vázquez was born in bogotá in 1973 and now lives in Barcelona. His essays, reviews and reportages have appeared in various magazines and literary supplements. He was recently nominated as one of the «Bogota 39», South America’s most promising writers of the new generation.
