  • Historic location with very nice architecture. All charming despite internal accommodation being old and without much comfort.

  • The door was open and we get to see this beautiful building at the University of Cartagena, the first of the Colombian Caribbean, which was founded in 1827 by Bolivar and Santander, two heroes pátrios. Despite the lively student party that was going on, we were able to admire the beautiful inner courtyard, which has beautiful arches and gardens.

  • The building of the local University, one of the Kartoheny that you want to see in order to understand the local history. Very bright and unusual position of architecture building.
