The Most Interesting Historical Places in Cartagena

Cartagena has many places to visit for people looking for knowledge of  the local history as Cartagena is a cultural mecca. There are 
several wonderful museums, public squares and historic buildings to visit, see and experience. For those lacking time or looking for detail, we recommend one of our guided tours. In each tour, you are led around the city by a professional, historically-certified guide who will awe you with the significance of each and every spot visited along the tour.
 
However, many people are more interested in seeing the city on their own and prefer to get lost in the magic of Cartagena and learn about the history in a different way. Here, we´ve created a summary of the most famous locations and monuments which you can check out on your own and use as your own personal guide. Remember, Hi Cartagena is here for you if there’s anything at all you need, please let us know. Our concierge is waiting for your call.
