Cartagena, with its beautiful colonial architecture, UNESCO-rated walled city and colourful harbour area, is a must-visit destination when in Colombia. This half-day tour of Cartagena encompasses all of the must-see locations in the city, included the 16th century Castle of San Felipe, survivor of multiple battles and invasions, and San Pedro Claver Church, which is of immense importance to Colombia’s African-American population. A knowledgeable and passionate guide will bring the history and culture of Cartagena through the ages to life, with discussions on notable figures in politics and the arts.
Another memorable stop on this Cartagena gift experience is sure to be the Palace of the Inquisition, a beautiful building which was once a focal point of a dark period in Colombian history. The Inquisition saw hundreds of Jews and non-Catholics tried, many on drummed-up charges, and executed. The final stop on the tour is perhaps the most enjoyable, as you take a stroll along the seafront for a magical sunset.
