Templo de Santo Domingo, Cartagena

(380+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

  • Although not open all the time, specific only in hours. It is very beautiful. With its construction in stone

  • Almost always closed, went through several times and was lucky to find it open for visitation. Is not too large in size, but the beauty of the altars, and three on the bottom and more 2 on each side, one more beautiful than the other, enchant anyone. His right foot is too high showing your magnificence. Everything is very well maintained and clean. Worth knowing.

  • Located in the plaza, with the same name, it is a very sober Church whose façade is of stone and the interior of diverse and intense colors. Nice and quiet, people come to find a moment of peace.
