hkskyline's 2018 in Cartagena, Colombia's Caribbean Paradise

Cartagena's historic centre has plenty of colourful preserved architecture, churches, squares, and fine restaurants.

The Spanish arrived here in 1533 thinking they had reached Asia. They were wrong, but the town flourished as a port for treasures to be sent back to Europe. This got the French and the English interested. Huge walls were built to surround the city in the early 17th century.

Nice pictures! Cartagena looks pretty nice. It seems almost Puerto Rican.

I've been hearing some good things about Colombia lately!

I've heard nothing but wonderful things about Cartagena. I always think of Romancing the Stone when I think of that city. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

12km of ramparts enclose the historic city centre, and it is open to the public to get a different perspective on the city, and to see a beautiful sunset.























The Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas was one of 3 forts that protected the bridge into the inner city. Being the largest Spanish fort built in the Americas, visitors can climb up to the top for a wonderful view of the historic city centre and the skyline rising behind it.

Surprised to see so many high-rises. Even though they are all condos, still, surprised.
