Defenses no longer in existence

 

Despite the fact that Cartagena conserves a large portion of the group of military fortifications constructed during the colonial era, some of these defenses did not survive.  While some became obsolete, others were destroyed by enemy attacks that did not leave traces of what at the time were outstanding works of engineering.

Among the defenses that have not survived are El Boquerón (1566), which was erected on the island of Manga, the Batteries of Santángel (1617), in Bocagrande; the Battery of San Matías (1567), where today El Laguito exists; and the Fort of San Luis (1646), in Bocachica.
