Cartagena is a popular tourist destination and an important financial centre. The city was the first base of the Spanish Navy, and still has much of its colonial architecture intact. It has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, for its extensive cultural and monumental heritage, with emphasis on its well-preserved colonial buildings such as the Palace of Inquisition (Palacio de la Inquisición), which includes an art gallery; Casa del Almirante (House of admiral) built by Admiral Pedro Menéndez de Avilés in 1565; Cathedral Basilica dedicated to Our Lady Of The Assumption constructed between 1575–1740; Convento Dominico Santa Catalina founded in 1627 by Franciscan monks who came from Cádiz, Spain. Cartagena's main economic activities include finance: Bancolombia is headquartered there—Colombia's largest bank—and Sofitasa S.A., one of Latin America's largest insurance companies also maintains headquarters there .
