Language: Creeole subtitles Eng

The village of Palenque de San Basilio, with a population of about 3,500 inhabitants, is located in the foothills of the Montes de María, southeast of the regional capital, Cartagena. Palenque de San Basilio was one of the walled communities called palenques, which were founded by escaped slaves as a refuge in the seventeenth century.

Of the many palenques that existed in former times, only San Basilio has survived until the present day. It developed into a unique cultural space.
