Cartagena

City of Heroes

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Barrio Getsemani and Plaza de la Proclamacion. Do some cultural sightseeing at Templo de Santo Domingo and Walled City of Cartagena. Get out of town with these interesting Cartagena side-trips: Isla Baru (Playa Blanca & Aviario Nacional de Colombia). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de Santo Toribio, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, contemplate the long history of Plaza Santo Domingo, and make a trip to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas.
