Our Cartagena City Tour starts with the transfer from the city center to the La Popa Convent. From the convent you will have a great view over the whole city. From there, we will proceed to the biggest fortress built by the Spaniards in South America, the San Felipe de Barajas Fortress. We will visit the whole fortress including some of its tunnels, as well as the statue of Don Blas de Lezo.
Afterwards, we will go back to the city center and visit the most important landmarks, such as the official entrance to the walled city with the Clock Tower (Torre del Reloj). Behind it, we will find the Monument of Don Pedro de Heredia, the founder of Cartagena de Indias (1533). Your guide will tell you about the story of Cartagena’s founding and will share interesting stories full of legends and pirates.
