Emerald Museum and Shopping Tour Cartagena
In this Emerald Museum and Shopping Tour Cartagena we can start with the handicrafts zone of the Bovedas, a collection of archways built into the city wall of Cartagena that were used until the end of the 1700s to house armaments and then later as a prison in the XIX century. Nowadays it’s an artisan center where you can appreciate local handcraft, local shops and galleries. We will continue the tour with a visit to the Emerald Museum, located in a colonial house of the Historic Center.
