Cumana, one of the oldest Hispanic cities in south America, lies on the north coast of Venezuela, to the east of Caracas and south of Isla Margarita. It was founded in 1521 to develop the nearby pearl fisheries. Due to earthquakes the city is a mixture of old and new including two fortresses, Castillo de San Antonio de la Eminencia (1686) and Castillo de Santa Maria de la Cabeza (1669). There are also the remains of the Convento de San Francisco dating from 1514 and Santa Ines Church (1637) as well as several interesting museums.
