What to expect
  • Depart from your cruise ship docking point with your knowledgeable guide to begin your enriching exploration of the city. Begin your tour at the La Popa Monastery where you can learn about its history and appreciated the "Heroic City." Arrive at the legendary landmark of Castillo San Felipe (San Felipe Castle) a foreboding fortress perched upon the hilltop of San Lazaro. Explore the interior with your guide, learning about the destruction and danger experienced by the fort as you appreciate stunning views of the Caribbean coast. Then continue for a stroll through the picturesque historic center, over which the iconic Torre de Reloj clock tower reigns supreme. Capture this significant site on camera before gaining insight into the history of Plaza de la Aduana, a site on which hundreds of slaves were traded long ago. Next, visit the sacred San Pedro Claver Church and Plaza de Bolivar to learn about religious art, history, and the city's colonial buildings. At the end of the tour, you are dropped off at the parking lot of the port to board your cruise ship. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Cartagena port for this activity.
