Full description
Discover the magic of Cartagena — declared a World Heritage Site for its architectural distinction and its history — on this 4-hour, small-group tour. Visit the main sites around the city and learn the rich stories behind its culture.

Head to the La Popa monastery, located on the tallest hill in the city, to get amazing views and take the best pictures from above. From there, explore the Fort San Felipe de Barajas, a 16th-century hilltop fortress built by the Spanish to protect against pirates and the English navy. Your guide will accompany you to tell the stories within the fort and explain more of its importance to Cartagena.

Make a quick stop at an emblematic symbol of Cartagena — the Old Shoes Monument — and continue into the Walled City. Take a guided walk around the historic center and gain a deep understanding of its culture and architecture before returning to your hotel.
