"An amazing colonial city" Cartagena by Lodestar
Cartagena Travel Guide: 566 reviews and 1,591 photos
Cartagena has been called the most beautiful city in colombia, an dthere is a lot of truth to that. full of beautiful colonial houses, massive churches, street cafes, craftsmen, providing a nice view on the sea - you shouldn't miss it. but that is only the old town (the "walled city"). in the other parts you can find clubs, restaurans, bars, nice hotels, a beautiful beach, but also the poor neighbourhood with it's horribly dirty streets, smelly marketplaces and noisy atmosphare. but there you can find the cheapest accommodation... definately a city worth visiting...
- Pros:The old town, architecture, cultural atmosphare
- Cons:Too touristy, rip-offs, crowded beaches
This plaza is situated on the left side from the entrance from the clock gate. Just around the corner you can see some... more travel advice
