Departing from the pier, your first stop will be a panoramic view of the imposing military fort of San Felipe de Barajas which is situated outside the walled city. You will then enter the historic Colonial district. The immense walls took 194 years to be completed and enabled Cartagena to defend itself from the numerous attacks of English pirates and other invaders.
The Spanish Colonial architecture is some of the most impressive and best preserved in South America with its imposing merchant’s houses, narrow streets, flower bedecked balconies stunning civic buildings and beautiful churches. The city is rife with squares and public spaces that are now home to sidewalk café’s and restaurants where Colombians and visitors alike relax and enjoy the magic of this amazing walled city. From here, you'll enjoy a refreshment stop before heading to the modern district of Bocagrande where you'll have free time to browse and shop at the Pierino Gallo shopping centre. Return to the pier.
