    Walking to the Plaza Bolivar I found this neoclassical building, the facade has four columns with capitals Ionians and the classic Pediment in the middle looks ornaments with vegetable motifs and date: 1907. Certainly it is striking, because it differs from your style when you get used in Cartagena to mansions and colonial with their distinctive roofs and balconies, this houses as it is the exception. The Interior has a wide central nave which functions as a reading room, the books are stored in wood cabinetry the aisles. It has a good amount of stained glass that bring aesthetics and artistic surroundings with affinity for reading. Data plate set: "... It is one of the largest public libraries of the country, and makes part of the network of libraries from the Bank of the Republic of Colombia..." Enjoy Cartagena. LIFE... is a journey"

    Terrible, this place has a preference for a type of audience, I have long been in this library. I have long been here and still treat me as if I were to steal books. In the same way the Secretariat making loans them books. As always, the town's the elitist Cartagena

    The truth this library is very bad, staff here works tends to be rude at the time of the service, especially with the students or anyone who does not show "have money", to sadness that is elitist.

    Beautiful architecture and a modest but well chosen bibliographic catalog.

Where to stay in Cartagena

Despite its status as a major tourist hub, Cartagena offers a good choice of affordable places to stay. If you're looking to splurge, consider staying at one of the town's restored colonial-era buildings, which now house boutique hotels packed with modern amenities. Alternatively, several old monasteries in Cartagena's walled colonial district offer outstanding facilities at very high prices. Budget-conscious travelers can explore the many mid-range hotels and low-cost hostels clustered in Getsemani, an up-and-coming neighborhood and center of the backpacker scene.
