Some of these houses were even built during the 17th century and still today their structures have been beautifully conserved. Their unique hallways, wooden details and lush patios will make you feel far away from the bustling city center, and this is what gives the magic to a Colonial Wedding. In very few places in the world will you be able to find this level of class and style and unique architecture. Your jaw will drop on seeing some of the structures we work in on a daily basis; think oasis-style pools, open patios, and twinkling lights in secret annexes.
There is a symbolic place in Cartagena, somewhere that everybody simply has to visit – the famous wall that surrounds the whole old city. Thirteen kilometers of protective wall built by the Spaniards during their colonial time here to protect the city from pirates and other invaders. El Baluarte has a fantastic sea breeze which can cool you down on a hot Caribbean evening and also boasts one of the best sunset-viewing spots in the world. It’s a unique and highly sought-after location for a wedding ceremony, dinner, the after-party or all three of them. A wedding on the Baluarte make you form part of the city’s history.
