On Sunday, March 18, Prince Albert arrived in Colombia for a multi-day trip, his first official visit to the country.

Received warmly by President Juan Manuel Santos in the city of Cartagena, this visit marked by friendship between the two states, which led also to the signing of several agreements on environmental protection and the economy.

Prince Albert praised the efforts of the Colombian Government to rebuild peace in their country.

The international association “Peace and Sport”, which is based in Monaco, was part of the delegation and organised a football match with Colombian children sponsored by the international foootballer Didier Drogba.

Prince Albert continued his week-long trip in the South American country by attending a conference on ocean acidification.

He also visited the archaeological site “Ciudad Perdida”, discovered in 1972, that is a 400,000 hectares nature reserve where indigenous tribes live.

At the end of the week, the Sovereign joined the exploration vessel Yersin and members of Monaco Explorations to participate in a series of underwater dives on the island of Malpelo.
