Full description
Start in the Plaza de Santa Teresa, where you can see the contrast between the colonial buildings of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries as well as a beautiful stretch of walls at Baluarte San Francisco Javier. Continue to San Juan De Dios Street until reaching San Pedro Claver church where you will take a guided tour of approximately 30 minutes. Later on, pass through the Aduana Plaza, Coches plaza, and Proclamation Square to visit the Plaza de Bolivar and the palace of the Inquisition. This palace was created in colonial times to punish all those people against the Catholic Church. Enter the palace with your guide to learn more about this infamous site. Continue to the square of the Inquisition, Plaza Santo Domingo and alley of the stirrups where you will reach the Santo Domingo baluarte. From there, visit the Café del Mar restaurant, known as having the best view of the sunset in the city of Cartagena. Continue with a short tour of the wall and visit some other plazas and streets until reaching the Las Bovedas handcrafts market, which is the final point of the tour.

You can y replicate the experience self-guided, as we sometimes do. The excellent historical perspective and knowledge of the sights was invaluable. I strongly recommend and urge you to take this tour. The transformation of this country is amazing, should be applauded and encouraged to continue, and, most importantly, understood. The tour helped that.

Walter was a great tour guide and explored our interests to make sure we had the best time. Started with a brief history and then moved toward the more important landmarks before heading out on foot.
