Our Expert Guide will take you on a complete city tour visiting Cartagena's most iconic and important sites.
Cartagena is a city full of stunning scenery, including its famous port overflowing with history and legends.
Our tour will begin at La Popa Hill, from where you will have one of the most impressive views of the city. This hill was used as a barrack and fortress during the independence and civil wars of the XIX century, and today stands out as one of the main tourist attractions due to its prime location. Here, you will visit the Monastery and the Candelaria Convent Chapel.
We will continue our journey stopping next at the San Felipe de Barajas Castle, an old fort built to protect the people of Colombia from their attackers. Today, this fascinating site gives us a stunning panoramic view of the city.
From the fort, we will move into the old city to enjoy a peaceful walk through its streets, admiring its classic architecture, glamorous houses, and legendary squares. We will also visit, depending on your preference, the Inquisition Palace or San Pedro Claver Church, a Colombian catholic temple dedicated to San Pedro Claver, whose remains are found in its altar.
This tour will give you an overall look at the importance of this city, especially during the colonial era, as one of the continent's main ports serving Spanish royalty.
