12 Jun Historical Walking Tour
Some people travel to a new city and are content to walk the streets, looking at buildings and watching people, without any idea of where they really are. On the other hand, most people want the whole story – what happened here and there, what is the historical significance of this and that building? Who are the famous people who built, fought, lived and died in the area and what are the magical stories.
Come with us on an historical, three hour walking tour of the old city and we’ll bring you up to date; we’ll take you through all the most prominent locations and along the way, our certified guide will regal you with the history and color of the old city.
You’ll see and learn the significance of several famous spots including an icon of the city’s fortifications, Las Bovedas (The Vaults), two of the most beautiful Colonial mansions, Casa Pombo and Casa Pestagua and also to the renowned church of San Pedro Claver. Along the way, we’ll walk through several charming plazas, stopping to chat with the local characters who really make the old city the beauty that it is. Finally, we’ll go somewhere special for some tasty Colombian coffee.
