Cartagena Private and Semi-Private Guided Tours
Cartagena still bears many vestiges of its time as a Spanish colony in the 16th century. Its historic walled center, full of peaceful plazas, stone churches, and colorful mansions, transports us back to the Spanish conquest, where the Catholic Church, the indigenous, African slaves, and even pirates played a role in the city's evolution. Cartagena is now a diverse seaside city acclaimed for its street art, tropical beaches, and prominent residents, including the Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
