MUSEO NAVAL DEL CARIBE
Cartagena, Columbia and the Caribbean have a maritime history that spans over more than four hundred years. You can experience this rich culture at Museo Naval del Caribe. As the only naval museum of its kind in the country, it provides exhibits and educational opportunities that both inform and delight.
PALACIO DE LA INQUISICIÓN
Its beautiful late colonial architecture makes this historic building stand out in the city. But its original purpose to punish those accused of heresy should not be overlooked. Today, you can visit this palace, which is now a museum, and see the torturous instruments of its past on display. There are also pieces of pottery, paintings, furniture and church bells to view.
PARQUE LA MARINA
Located near the Museo Naval del Caribe, this lovely park is the perfect place to relax. With its large pool, fountain and refreshing green area, you can unwind after a day of sightseeing. Plus, you’re welcome to explore the sizeable collection of monuments dedicated to the Colombian naval forces.
BANCO DE LA REPÚBLICA
In addition to performing economic research, Banco de la República is a hub of cultural activity for Cartagena. It oversees the Colombian Caribbean Observatory, an international film festival, theatrical venues and other artistic attractions for the benefit of the general public.
IGLESIA Y MONASTERIO SAN PEDRO CLAVER
Founded by the Jesuits in 1603, this historic building is where the Spanish-born priest Pedro Claver both lived and died. This beloved monk dedicated his life to the city’s slaves and was canonized two centuries after his passing. You can pay respect to his remains in a glass coffin at the altar of an adjacent church.
MUSEO DE SAN PEDRO CLAVER
Operating since 1950, this museum honors the legacy of Pedro Claver and his dedication to protecting thousands of slaves who arrived in Cartagena. Additionally, the museum has an extensive archaeological collection that includes pre-Colombian works of art and other historical materials.
