The site of the continent's first Spanish colony, Cartagena retains much of its colonial flavor thanks to a World Heritage-listed old town, encircled by old walls and protected by imposing fortresses.
You'll explore and learn at Casa Museo Rafael Nunez and Museo del Oro Zenu. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Barrio Getsemani and Iglesia de Santo Toribio. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cartagena: Isla Baru (Aviario Nacional de Colombia, Playa Puntilla, &more) and Castillo de Salgar (in Puerto Colombia). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Templo de Santo Domingo, admire the striking features of Cathedral Basilica of St. Catherine of Alexandria, visit Centro Historico, and contemplate the long history of Plaza de la Proclamacion.
