Castillo de Salgar, Puerto Colombia

Overlooking the water from atop a windy cliff, Castillo de Salgar stands out among the inspiring scenery with its bright yellow color. Having served many purposes since its construction in 1848--including prison, colony, and customs control house--the renovated clifftop building now functions primarily as a restaurant and event space. Climb to the castle's second floor to enjoy panoramic views out over the Caribbean Sea. Cap off the experience with a delicious meal at the onsite restaurant.
