Walled City, Cartagena Overview

Reflecting the rich colonial history, the old town and the inner walled city are Cartagena's centre of attraction.

Surrounded by thick walls built as a defence against pirate attacks and storm, and taking almost two centuries to complete, the inner city is an entirely different world. Consisting of colonial period structures, churches and monasteries, this place gives its visitors a time travel to 16th and 17th century. Adding to the colonial charm, one can find numerous boutiques, restaurants, bars and expensive hotels within the premises. Best explored on foot, this UNESCO world heritage site is an incredible experience. Take a stroll under shade of colonial mansions and palaces to witness this architectural gem.
