Fully customizable tour of Cartagena

Without a doubt, Cartagena's old city is its principal attraction, particularly the inner walled town, consisting of the historical districts, It is a real gem of colonial Architecture, packed with Churches, Monasteries, Plazas, Palaces, and Mansions with their overhanging Balconies and shady Patios.

The Walled Town is surrounded by Las Murallas, the thick walls built to protect it against enemies. The walls are an outstanding piece of Military Engineering preserved in remarkably good shape. The best approach to experiencing the Old Town is to wander leisurely, savoring the Architectural details, street life, and local Snacks along the way.
