Cartagena District

3.7
Spanish conquerors established their first South American colony in the area now covered by Cartagena District, which manages to retain most of its colonial look and feel thanks to its historic neighborhoods. No Cartagena District itinerary would be complete without a visit to one of the World Heritage-listed fortification areas, sites of some the greatest fortresses built by colonial Spanish engineers. Venturing farther away from the old colonial core, tours of Cartagena District reveal working-class neighborhoods and provide a less touristy glimpse into daily life in South America. Cartagena District is in Bolivar Department. Add Cartagena District and other Colombia destinations to your travel plans using our Colombia driving holiday planner.
