Colonial Cartagena description

Discover the true colours of Cartagena de las Indias in a tour of its historical centre. Learn about its colourful history and culture in the city’s top attractions and through its streets and squares. Visit the Inquisition Palace and Historical Museum, explore behind the grand stone façade of the Saint Peter Claver Church and shop for local handicrafts in the old cells of the Bovedas dungeon.

Walk through the streets of historical Cartagena and discover the stories behind the city that played a key role during the administration and expansion of the Spanish empire. Tour the fascinating colonial walled city and fortress, now designated a Unesco World Heritage site, where the wealthy viceroys once strolled and enter the Inquisition Palace – one of the most impressive examples of colonial architecture. Step through its ostentatious baroque entrance into the gruesome underworld of the Holy Office. See the torture instruments used and witness the execution site of heretics before heading up to the second floor where the Historical Museum is located.

Once you’ve buffed up on the past centuries of Cartagena’s lively history, the tour takes you to the Church of Saint Peter Claver. Explore behind its striking façade, and discover its fine stained glass windows and the altar with a difference before heading to the Bovedas. Attached to the city walls, the Bovedas dungeon cells and storage vaults now serve to sell local Caribbean handicrafts, where you can easily pick up a souvenir to remember your colourful time in this colourful city.
