The city is like a colonial treasure trove available to the public, but it has much more to offer than just history and culture. The Old Town of Cartagena is a Unesco World Heritage Site, and it is a labyrinth of cobbled streets, balconies draped with bougainvillea, and massive churches whose shadows fall across plazas of lush vegetation.
