Templo de Santo Domingo, Cartagena

(4.4/5 based on 380 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Maybe not my favorite but very beautiful church. I liked the dome like shape that was different from the shape of most other churches in the city.

  • 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.
