Cartagena is an unforgettable destination, marked by the attacks against its mighty fortifications and by the history which earned it the title of the “Heroic City”, which you can still see and feel in every corner of the place.
The old city opens its gates to reveal hidden secrets of an age surrounded by magic and enchantment.
The details of a fascinating age of architecture are still sumptuous today, preserving the indelible memory of a bygone age.
The musky odor of old centuries-old woodwork , the traces of the days of Spanish colonial rule , the work of the early Republic, fine arches, a pleasant breeze coming off the sea – all of these are part of the spirit of the mansions of the walled city of Cartagena.
The history of these imposing buildings begins in the 17th century. Some have now been restored and adapted as superb little boutique hotels, offering the visitor an exclusive and wonderful experience.
