4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Step through the heavy red doors of St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral and set your gaze along the central nave to admire a golden altar. Completed in 1612 according to an Andalucian-inspired design by Simón González, the episcopal cathedral adds an airy touch to the old streets of Cartagena, with its light yellow facade and pink dome. As you walk through the columned cathedral, look up to the top of the walls and behind the altar to appreciate a collection of intricate wood carvings.

  • Though currently its interior is closed to the public, the exterior is very beautiful and more due to its environment. On one side is the Bolívar Park, the Museum of the Inquisition and history; opposite, the beautiful house Drake, the pirate of the same surname. In the evening, this place can be rented cars pulled by horses for 60 thousand Colombian pesos measuring time.
