  • Most attractive square, gateway from the port through which the traders and slaves would have entered the town. Important building and a must see.  more »
  • You can't go inside, you just can have a quick view and take an awesome picture of your visit to this beautiful city. It is one of the most iconic places in Cartagena.  more »

  • Alcalde... good afternoon! I frequently visit to Cartagena and do with my spouse and guests tours of the walled city. He commented that every I going find more neglected, an infinity of aqueduct and tops records that do not exist or are in poor condition constituting traps for passers-by. Tracks and we see them decline and will soon be impassable. What about the entrance to the plaza Santa Teresa, is shameful. Mr. Mayor, is the recovery of the Corralito de Piedra, which is pride of all Colombians.

  • Dear Mayor: I was born in Cartagena and I live in the United States many years ago. I visited the fantastic recently and enjoy recalling every corner, this beautiful but very embarrassed see garbage on the floor everywhere. Cartagena many tourists from around the world visit it and insurance is returned with the same disappointment than I. Walk in the Center looking for a waste to throw away my trash and could find "only one and full", after half an hour. A city so beautiful and tourist as it is, should have a trash basket in each corner to prevent that people throw their dirt everywhere. I tried to be a good citizen and I took my time but there will be others who will not import them. It is the duty of all keep the city clean but also is the duty of the Mayor's office help and provide with wastebaskets. If I saw that there were signs to promote the cleaning but not a basket available. Invite him to walk the city centre and you notice yourself! Thank you for your great work.

  • Cartagena is a very beautiful city and tourist par excellence... But is very sad to see as the dirt and odors invading the walled stone city... The Mayor's office should begin a campaign of cleansing in the squares and streets of the old... The clock tower square is black the grime and grease, like the Park Bolivar... and the most embarrassing is the courtyard of the Mayor, the Customs Plaza... I invite the mayor or to whom it may concern that at a glance and is as the dirt and odors are destroying Cartagena... I was in weeks past with a few guests from Europe and was a shame to show both dirt...

  • Lack of environmental culture and productive definition where the administrators distritalrs should promote citizen participation
