CARTAGENA DE INDIAS
Cartagena de Indias is the most important touristic destination in Colombia and one of the most visited cities in Latin America.
The charm of the city is a combination of its natural attractions and its rich history, which is reflected in its colonial, republican, and modern architecture.
Cartagena is considered a World Heritage by UNESCO.
‘La Heroica’, as it is known, has historical areas such as the San Felipe Castle, the Palace of the Inquisition, the Clock Tower, the walls of the old city, the colonial streets, and also natural beauties such as the beaches of the nearby islands of Rosario and Barú.
You can’t leave Cartagena without tasting the delicious carimañolas (fried yucca filled with beef and cheese), buñuelitos de frijol (corn bread with black beans), and coconut rice.
One of the best gifts to take from Cartagena are the crafts, which are the representation of the traditions and beliefs of the people of Cartagena. For more information on where to buy them, visit http://www.artesaniasdecolombia.com.co/
