We start this tour of Cartagena with a visit to the Convento de la Popa, where the city's highest point is located and from where you can enjoy the best view of the beautiful city. We continue with a visit to the Castillo de San Felipe, located at the top of Cerro San Lázaro, its purpose was to protect and guard the city's landward side from any attack or invasion. Afterwards, a walk through the colourful Las Bóvedas reveals 23 vaults built in the 18th century that are considered the last major colonial construction made within the city walls for military purposes.

We then take a walk through the inner walled section of the colonial city. You will discover Cartagena's rich history and beautiful colonial architecture, admiring the old houses, stunning balconies and little squares. You will get to know more about the culture of Cartagena and its interesting architecture, as you walk through the different cobbled streets and plazas; each street has a different story to tell. You will also see this city alive, with its students, vendors, and all the people that live there.
