Admire the Cartagena Cathedral by Night!

History

The beautiful Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica of Saint Catherine of Alexandria is located in the center of the walled city of Cartagena, close to the Parque de Bolivar and the Zenu Gold Museum. You can visit this well-preserved and restored Cartagena cathedral and request a self-guided tour for the price of COP$12,000 for adults and COP$8000 for children.

 

What’s Special

I’d recommend visiting this square in the evenings, as the Cartagena cathedral is beautifully lit up, as are its’ surrounding buildings. In the evenings, in the Parque de Bolivar, you’ll also witness the traditional Colombian dancers performing quite a spectacle.

The great thing about this little square is that it’s close to many little gems of the city. For example, we usually grab a drink at El Baron on the San Pedro plaza, which is just down the street. When wanting to grab a bite, we take to the 3rd floor of Crepes&Waffles (2 minutes away), eat a yummy crepe whilst admiring the lit-up rooftops of the city.

If you’re there in the afternoon, take 45 minutes to an hour to visit the gold museum and later, grab a delicious ice cream a little further down the street at La Paletteria.
