Visit the Colonial district: Bolivar Park, Gold Museum, Inquisition Palace, Santo Domingo church and square, the Cathedral, Terraces and City Fortifications Museum in this Cartagena half day city tour.
Cartagena Half Day City Tour
Half-day visit to the city’s colonial district beginning at Bolivar Park which is nicely shaded by large trees with four fountains and a statue of the great Liberator in the middle. Surrounding the square is the Gold Museum, which exhibits its fine collection of archaeological objects dating back to the pre-Hispanic period; and the Inquisition Palace, recognizable for its large baroque door. The Inquisition held its meetings in the palace here and it was also the site of the prison and torture chambers for presumed heretics and opponents of the Catholic Church. The visit continues to Santo Domingo church, the Cathedral and ends at the Terraces and the Museum of the City’s Fortifications. The perfect trip for those wanting to learn more about the city’s fascinating history and culture, also really convenient for those short on time!
