Free Walking Tour of the Getsemaní Neighbourhood & Historic Centre

Having met up at your chosen time in the Plaza de Cervantes, we'll set off on our free tour of Cartagena de Indias.

After introducing ourselves, we'll start our tour by visiting some of the most symbolic streets in the historic centre of Cartagena de Indias. First of all, we'll walk under the arches of the Clock Tower to get to the old Esclavo Square. We'll then see the Portal de los Dulces and learn some fun facts about art in this city.

Next, we'll stop in front of the San Pedro Claver Sanctuary and then head to the San Francisco Javier Bastion and Bolívar Square. We'll then go to Centenario Park, which is one of the main green spaces in Cartagena de Indias' old town. After learning about its history, we'll make our way to the beautiful Getsemaní neighbourhood along Magdalena Street.

Among the main attractions of Getsemaní is its colourful San Andrés Street, where we'll observe the famous graffiti murals. These works of urban art blend perfectly with the architecture of the houses in the area.

We'll continue our route through Getsemaní by visiting other iconic places in the neighbourhood such as Guerrero Street and the Callejón Ancho. Finally, we'll pass through the colourful Plaza de la Trinidad and, having spent 2 hours 30 minutes touring the city, round off the activity by looking at the murals in San Juan Street.
