Valledupar is a city and municipality in northeastern Colombia. It is the capital of Cesar Department and was founded in 1550 by the Spanish conquistador Hernando de Santana. Its name, Valle de Upar (Valley of Upar), was established in honor of the Amerindian cacique who ruled the valley; Cacique Upar. The city lies between the mountains of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the Serrania del Perija to the borders of the Guatapurí and Cesar rivers.[3] Valledupar is an important agricultural, cattle raising, and agro-industrial center for the region between the Departments of Cesar and southern municipalities of La Guajira Department, formerly known as the Padilla Province. Valledupar is notable as the cradle of vallenato music, representative of the Colombian culture. The city hosts the Vallenato Legend Festival. During the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s, the city suffered during the Colombian Armed Conflict, with numerous kidnappings,[4] thousands of people forced out[5] and failure to control crime, especially attacks on journalists.[6] Valledupar has one of Colombia's most modern maximum security prisons.[7]

Valledupar es una ciudad ubicada en la costa norte de Colombia. No tiene entrada directa al mar, pero tiene un impresionante legado histórico, el cual se manifiesta en iglesias y en comunidades indígenas cercanas con las que los viajeros pueden entrar en contacto. En Valledupar los sonidos de la música vallenata, a los que se les rinde homenaje en varios monumentos, alegran el ambiente. En los alrededores es posible visitar ciénagas, ríos, parques y otros sitios naturales, además de una gastronomía autóctona única en la región. Es conocida por ser el corazón del vallenato, un ritmo musical a través del cual se cuentan leyendas y mitos populares. Recorrer la ciudad bajo la sombra de miles de árboles de mango, bañarse en el río, disfrutar de una salida nocturna con amigos, son planes que hacen de Valledupar una ciudad distinta al resto de la Costa Caribe.
