Turbo Antioquia Colombia - 4th November 2016

Turbo is a port town in Antioquia Department, Colombia. It is located on the coast of Gulf of Urabá, 340 km. north of Medellín. This port city is the capital of the Urabá region of Antioquia, Colombia. The place where Turbo is today was known as Pisisí, but by 1741 people were already talking about Turbo. By a decree on May 11, 1839, the central government spent one thousand pesos for a military service barracks in Turbo. In 1840 the republican president assigned one thousand fanegas (Spanish Bushel equal to 8.81 acres) of uncultivated lands for the new population. It was established as a municipality in 1847
