Exclusive Shore Excursion

Cartagena, Colombia
Cartagena Sights & Sounds

This tour departs directly from the pier and explores the magnificent city of Cartagena. One of the most important ports in colonial times for transporting gold and other precious cargo to Spain, Cartagena was under frequent attack by pirates and corsairs. In 1543, Robert Baals staged a successful attack on the city and made off with 682 pounds of gold. More were to follow; Sir Francis Drake (1586), Jean-Bernard Desjeans, Jean Ducasse (1697), and Edward Vernon (1741) all enjoyed spending the wealth of the Spanish crown. Tired of the constant pillaging of the city, the colonists fortified the city, making Cartagena most impenetrable colonial stronghold in South America. Your tour first drives through the residential area of Manga, where you can admire the late-19th century Republican-style mansions. Nearby, Castillo San Felipe de Barajas Fort was Latin America s most important military structure and was built in the 17th and 18th centuries to defend the city. After this visit tour will continue to the Old City, make your way to the Navy Museum to enjoy a folkloric show and relax with a soft drink, then will continue with a panoramic of San Pedro Claver church and square, Next you will stop at Inquisition Palace, which served as a tribunal court and tried anyone the Church viewed as a heretic. The palace contains instruments of torture, along with documents, paintings and explanations about the Inquisition. You will see the small barred window from which the sentences handed down by the tribunal were announced to the public. Generally speaking, it wasn’t good news.
