Cartagena Things to Do: 19 reviews and 43 photos
This simple yet impressive cathedral is a testimony to Saint Peter Claver who was a catholic priest who was among the first priests in South America to baptize negro slaves. He is often referred to as the slave to the slave because of his acts of teaching catecism, teaching and tending to the sick where they lived.
The church was constructed in the early 17th century by a member of a religious order to serve as testimony to Claver's work with the slaves. There is also an impressive cloister and courtyard. The fee to enter the church I recall was nominal. If you go do not forget to visit the courtyard.
Address: San Pedro de Claver Square, Central Cartagena
