Half day private guided tour of Cartagena
A half day private guided tour of the city, taking in the colonial district, starting in Parque Bolivar which is shaded by large trees, four fountains with a statue of the great Liberator in the centre. Around the square is the Museo del Oro, which exhibits its fine collection of archaeological objects dating back to the prehispanic period; and the Palacio de la Inquisicion, recognisable for its large baroque door. The Inquisition held its meetings in the palace here and it was also the site of the prison and torture chambers for presumed heretics, opponents of the Catholic church. The visit continues to the Santo Domingo church, the Cathedral and ends at the Terraplenes and the Museum of the City’s Fortifications.
