  • A great and beautiful library, with important holdings and pretty stained-glass Windows. Interesting to see the cultural side of the city.

  • 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"

  • love visiting libraries in cities I visit even if I can't read the local language. nice, quiet space.
  • The place is very nice and very useful collection. Too bad that he is to say the same of most of the staff working in the library. To be a site dedicated to the culture need to staff many have some of this. Or security personnel is saved, they target users with little kindness and it feels as if it were a thief. I repeat, is a shame. If you go to this place he avoids talking about the employees.

  • 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
