Cumaná Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 23 photos

Cumana has the honor of being the first city in the American continent founded by the Spanish, back in 1521, under the comand of Gonzalo de Ocampo. Its name, in the language of the Cumanagoto native tribe, means the union between the see and the river.

Even if the city was founded officially in 1521, since 1515 the Franciscan missionaries were present since 1521.
