Santa Marta

Welcome to Magdalena!

Santa Marta is a city located in the Magdalena department in the northern region of Colombia on the Caribbean coast. The city is famous for being the final resting place of Simon Bolivar who passed away at a ranch on the outskirts of the Santa Marta on December 17, 1830. Although his remains have been relocated to Caracas, Venezuela, there is a memorial monument located at the ranch estate La Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino that is open to tourists.
