Templo de Santo Domingo, Cartagena

4.5
#8 of 16 in Historic Sites in Cartagena
A historically significant place of worship, Templo de Santo Domingo, housed Dominican friars until the 19th century. The church displays a distinctly rustic colonial architecture, its chipped orange facade counterbalancing the look of the plaza that stands before it. Inside, the decoration is simple and authentic, with gravestones laid on the floor and a deep blue dome over the main alter. The stone arches of the central nave show off the architect's skills and carry their age rather well.

  • Great place. The history is amazing and you can join mass then have lunch in the plaza.
  • Ok
  • beautiful Catholic church in Cartagena
  • Nice photos!!
  • In front of a Plaza with restaurants and cafes, history and architecture intermingle. Inside the Church is beautiful but nothing out of the ordinary. When your around various sculptures in brass or iron (don't know) with daily themes, pretty cool. Too bad you don't have banks to sit down.
