Day 6: DISCOVER CARTAGENA
In the morning, you will take a fantastic 4-hours long city tour of Cartagena, a city that captures the heart of all its visitors because of its colours, Caribbean climate, warm people and its historical legacy.
This tour starts by picking you up at your hotel to take you to La Popa monastery. In this place, you can view Cartagena entirely from a viewpoint and learn about the history of this monastery.
Afterwards, we will drive to Castillo de San Felipe, a strong fort built on top of a mountain by the Spanish as a strategic point to gain control of the bay, where incredible battles were fought during many centuries. There we’ll have the opportunity to discover from the outside the impressive architecture and history behind this fort.
The Cartagena city tour continues with some great walks around the 2 oldest and most important neighbourhoods of Cartagena: Getsemani (famous for its graffities and colourful streets) and El Centro (the best preserved of the city).
In the afternoon, you will have some free time for you to enjoy the city on your own.
