“A fairy-tale city of romance, legends and sheer beauty, Cartagena is the most beautiful city in Colombia, with cobbled alleys, enormous balconies shrouded in bougainvillea, and massive churches casting their shadows across leafy plazas.

Door Knockers in Cartagena

Founded in 1533, Cartagena swiftly blossomed into the main Spanish port on the Caribbean Coast and the gateway to the north of the continent. It attracted pirates and, in the16th century suffered five sieges. ” -Lonely Planet

I am staying in the Media Luna district, at the Media Luna Hostel. There are many bars, stunning architecture and cheap places to eat. Many people claim that Cartagena is expensive, however you can always find cheap places to eat. I love it here!
