Your experience will start at Port of Cartagena where you will catch one of our coach or double-decker buses, heading to San Felipe de Barajas Fortress, the most important defense construction developed by the Spanish Empire in this part of the world. Your selfie experience will start at Commander Blas de Lezo y Olavarrieta Plaza, where the famous Spanish admiral and defender of the city overseas the fortress, with his one leg, one eye and one arm. Then, go to the top of the Fortress for another great selfie at the highest part of the construction, with a unique view of Cartagena de Indias.
Back on the bus, you will be heading towards Getsemani neighborhood to discover, by foot, its beautiful hidden treasures. Start your discovery journey at Chancletas (Flip Flops) Street heading towards our next selfie spot: Well Square, heart of the popular festivities during colonial times. After, the next spot is Trinidad Square where the church with the same name is located, with its historical significance for the independence of the city; and now known for its bars, restaurants and the colorful houses that surround it. The next place to take a great selfie is the Graffities of Getsemani, known all around the world. This artistic expression creates a unique balance with the architecture of the neighborhood.
