Templo de Santo Domingo, Cartagena

(400+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.
