Plaza Bolivar is a good place to relax and take a break from the sun. There's plenty of shade and while you're at it, you can check out on the map where you want to go next. The Inquisition Museum is right there and there's a money exchange office at the white "portals", south of the plaza. A few steps away you'll find the Cathedral, the Palacio de la Proclamación, Plaza de la Proclamación and the Gold Museum (free Tuesday - Sunday).

Plaza Bolivar is probably the nicest plaza in Cartagena. Nice places to sit under the mature trees with museums and the cathedral bordering the plaza. A must see.

So many thing to photograph, People, food vendors, Shoe shiners, cars. This is a great place to see stop and rest. From a park bench in the shade you can watch people feeding the pigeons from their hands. Fun place...

This was a quiet place to sit in front of the statue of Bolivar. It is right in front of the Inquisition and the Museum Oro. Nice shady spot on a hot day.
