Profile: Cartagena Walled City

Profile: Cartagena Walled City

The Cartagena Walled City, also known as Cartagena’s old town, is a maze of tall walls and stone fortresses only 10 km northwest of the city's center. You can lose yourself for hours on these charming streets, where magnificent churches and imposing mansions from colonial periods show off superior architecture.

Throughout the area, bustling plazas are crowded with sidewalk cafés and spirited bars. Old properties are drenched in vibrant colors, many with flower-filled balconies. You can even stay in some of them—many of the most ancient hotels are converted monasteries.
