Santa Marta Free Tour
We will meet up at the time of your choice in the Parque de los Novios in Santa Marta. From there, we will begin a brilliant free tour of one of the oldest cities in the Americas.
We will begin to tell the history of Santa Marta by walking past its most important street murals, which portray key moments from the city's past. Afterward, we will walk to the monument to Rodrigo de Bastidas and talk about the life of the founder of Santa Marta.
We will continue the free tour by visiting the Gabriel García Márquez Library, which pays tribute to the famous Colombian author. To enjoy the republican architecture of Santa Marta, we will go to the Mayor's Office, one of its most emblematic buildings in the city.
While we talk about the customs and traditions of this area of Colombia, we will walk along 12th Street, filled with fabulous cultural centers. We will then visit the city's temple par excellence: the cathedral-basilica of Santa Marta.
After a stop to refresh ourselves with a traditional drink, we will resume the free tour of Santa Marta by strolling along the picturesque streets of Callejón del Correo and Calle Colonial.
Finally, we will return to the original starting point and say goodbye after a fab free tour of two hours.
