Colombia Cartagena: City Highlights

Cartagena is delightful Spanish colonial city on the Cartibean. The walled city and Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other sights include Bocagrande on the Cartagena Bay, Convent of La Popa high above the city, the one eye / one leg / one arm protector against the British aka Admiral Blas de Lezo y Olavarrieta, Los Zapatos Viejos, Joyeria Caribe Emerald Museum and Factory, street music and a thoughtful exhibit about world problems as told by those with personal experience. We got a few hours break before we were picked up by horse carriage for another tour and dinner.
