Crepuscule (Twilight) Tour | Get acquainted with the Old City right away.
About This Experience
As you are going to see, Cartagena can be swelteringly hot. This walking tour begins in the late afternoon and continuing on into the cool of dusk and evening time. Marelvy will take you on a walking tour of the city’s always active main plazas, each one with its own particular character and history. From the Plaza of San Diego located between the University of Fine Arts and the building that was once the famous Convent of Santa Clara you’ll stroll through the park of Fernandez Madrid and then proceed on to the Plaza of the Coaches, alongside of the city’s watchtower, which is connected in turn to the broad Customs Plaza and the Plaza de Armas followed by the venerable Plaza of the Church of San Pedro Claver. As the warm yellow glow of lamplight grows slowly stronger in the street you will come upon the enchanting Plaza of Bolívar, now closed for restoration but the surroundings walls are popular art galleries but soon – with the peaceful murmur of its four fountains and the softly blown fronds of its towering palms – where you’ll invariably see traditional dances being performed by free-spirited young people in full regalia – before continuing the walk and ending up in the Plaza of the Church of Santo Domingo by nightfall.
