Get to know more about the culture of Cartagena and its interesting architecture, as we walk through the different cobbled streets and plazas; each street has a different story to tell. You will see this city alive with students, vendors, and all the people that live here. Along with your local guide you will pass by the main square called Plaza de Bolívar, and the Plaza de la Proclamación, where the town gathered to support the declaration of independence on November of 1811.

The tour then continues to the Plaza de San Pedro de Claver and Plaza de los Coches; a triangular plaza surrounded by the old city wall, houses with Spanish colonial architecture and buildings with colonial arches at ground level. This arcade walkway is known as El Portal de los Dulces.

At the end of the tour, you will visit the Plaza Santo Domingo. Full of life and entertainment it is a perfect place for social interaction and relaxation while enjoying the open air restaurants that are located there.
