Stop At: San Basilio De Palenque

San Basilio de Palenque is a district of 4,200 inhabitants, located in the municipality of Mahates, within the department of Bolívar (Colombia). It was declared a Cultural and Intangible Heritage of Humanity for being the first free town in colonial America (so decreed in 1691); a place far from the colonies to which the African slaves escaped to live in freedom, with autonomy and independence. In the Palenque de San Basilio some traditions such as the language, food, dance, and culture of the Africans are still preserved. It is located very close to the Canal del Dique, 50 km from the city of Cartagena de Indias. It has an approximate population of 4,200 people and borders the districts of Malagana, San Pablo and Palenquito. Because it is a corregimiento, it does not have economic or administrative autonomy.
