Plaza Santo Domingo, Cartagena

  • Local restaurants and the Church of St. Augustine, we found that the hawkers and approaches of the tire a little restaurants, but worth knowing why is history in Cartagena.

  • It is good to drink, there are many bars to share with Botero sculpture. At night it becomes very cool, as they say.

  • Very nice place. We had some beers and could enjoy a little of Cartagena's atmosphere. Very busy place, with music and many people around.
  • Amazing place, i recomend that place when you goint to visit Cartagena de Indias.
  • Great location and good pizza. One person can almost eat a whole pizza though.
  • La comida no tan buena como antes. Pedro, mesero en El Conde de la Cruz, excelente mesero.
  • Nice relaxing place full of restaurants and you won't have to deal with many street vendors approaching you here.
