Old Town in Cartagena

From the Getsami District, we walk a few blocks to the old town, past woodcarvers practicing their craft, creating beautiful articles, old rolling carts used for transportation and vending, and Parque Del Centenario, across from the convention center.

We enter the old town at Plaza de la Paz and start to wander in this fabulous area.

We walk into an emerald shop and admire the gems and the work being done to transform the stones into beautiful jewelry.

We continue to wander, eventually reaching the city walls on the other side of the old town.

Exiting the old town, we see modern Cartagena in the distance.
