Things to Do

Palacio de la Inquisicion is a museum that should be visited. Here you will learn about Cartagena's involvement in the Spanish Inquisition. A great place to learn about some history of this city.

One of the oldest buildings here in Cartagena is the San Felipe de Barajas Castle. This was used as a defense in colonial times. Great architecture of the building makes this place great for photos.
