The best things to do in Cartagena

There are so many places to visit in Cartagena that it can be difficult to decide where to start. Perhaps one of the main Cartagena attractions, in addition to its beautiful beaches and islands, is the Clock Tower, which is known worldwide. It is the main entrance to the historic city center, built on the wall in the nineteenth century. This center is known as the Walled City and is a World Heritage Site, so of course it's an essential entry on your list of stuff to do in Cartagena.

Other things to see in Cartagena are the Rosario Islands, a group of Caribbean islands surrounded by warm, clear waters. A tour out to these beautiful islands is one of the unmissable Cartagena activities. Don't forget that the city is associated with the history of pirates and if you're looking for things to do in Cartagena related to this, head to the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, a fortress built by the Spanish to protect the city.

Still wondering what to do in Cartagena? You should visit Gethsemane. This is one of the most important parts of the city because it was the site of Colombia's declaration of independence. Others important neighborhoods are Matuna, the financial district, and Pie de la Popa, one of the first neighborhoods in Cartagena. Today its colonial houses are among the attractions in Cartagena.
