Coveñas is a Colombian city located in the Sucre Department, north of the country. It was founded as a port called Hacienda Santa Bárbara de Cobeña. It later became one of the most important caribbean port for the Republic of Colombia.
The history of the city begins with a spaniard named Julián Patrón Airiarte, who began as a ñame trader and gathered enough capital which in turn allowed him to begin a slave trading enterprise.Its business flourished, and its hacienda expanded to become a significant part of what is now Coveñas. At the start of the XXth century, several industries bloomed in the city, which in turn led to the construction of an Industrial Complex and raised the demand for workers and permanent city residents. Also, since the decade of 1960, Coveñas has invested considerably in tourism infrastructure, and is now a frequently visited destination by both colombians and foreigners.
