"LAS BOVEDAS" Cartagena Things to Do Tip by swesn

Cartagena Things to Do: 265 reviews and 672 photos

In the north-eastern end of old Cartagena, in the San Diego neighbourhood, there is a long yellowish building with several dungeons which used to be military barracks.

These dungeons have been converted into souvenir shops. So, for some shopping, this is the place to pop in and out of. In fact, there are some interesting local Colombian art and creative displays that I found quite exceptional.

Definitely not the usual tourist-trap of mass-produced souvenir shops.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
