About Cartagena de Indias

Tourist sites

Walled City
((Historic Center)):

This is the historic heart of Cartagena, surrounded by 16th century walls. Here you will find colorful streets, beautiful plazas, churches and well-preserved colonial architecture.

San Felipe de Barajas Castle:

Located on the hill of San Lazaro, this imposing fortress was built in 1657 and is one of the largest military constructions ever built by the Spanish in America to defend the territory.

It is known as "the impregnable" because, although it suffered several attacks by enemies of the Spanish crown, it was never taken.

La Popa Convent:

Located on the top of a hill, it offers panoramic views of the city and the Caribbean Sea. Since its foundation in 1606, it has been guarded by the friars of the Order of Augustinian Recollects - OAR.

The vaults:

Old vaults that once served as ammunition depots, with 47 arches and 23 vaults, are the last work of the Colonial period and today are art galleries, bars and craft stores.


Playa Blanca:

Although it is not in the city, it is one of the most popular beaches near Cartagena. It can be accessed by boat from the Muelle de la Bodeguita.

Rosario Islands:

An archipelago of islands near Cartagena with crystal clear waters ideal for snorkeling and diving.

Isla Grande Beaches:
