Surrounded by colorful buildings and verandas, Plaza Santo Domingo serves as a hub for the city's outdoor dining and cafe culture. Head for the square and marvel at the brightly hued homes surrounding it, or snap a picture with the delightfully chubby Botero statue in the center. Don't miss stopping in at the 16th-century church, one of the city's most famous landmarks. You can wander the square's many stalls selling local arts, crafts, and souvenirs, or grab something to eat at the numerous outdoor restaurant tables. Afterwards, kick back with a coffee or a drink and enjoy the plaza's bustling activity.

  • Not be can leave of go and go all their surroundings and narrow streets. You will find different places to eat or drink something but the prices are high and they offer does not vary in general. Day is beautiful but don't forget to visit her at night because it follows a special charm, doing that at times you transfer to another time.

  • The square is surrounded by restaurants with outdoor tables. There are no performances of local dances and many, many street vendors who end up upsetting some insistence.

  • Beautiful and peaceful. I went on a Sunday morning to hear a bit of the church service. It was accessible and not at all crowded.
  • Its cheap and delicious, the only thing i hated was the waiting time they can be really really slow and it is understandable for the big amount of clients those restaurants get but besides everything is fine and its a must go place to eat if you are in cartagena
  • No other place this plaza. You can't leave to Cartagena without chilling here for and hour or two.
  • Nice parisean like atmosphere
  • I love El Centro. Great bars and restaurants within this plaza.
