History of Cartagena de Indias

Situated on a bay in the Caribbean Sea, Cartagena de Indias was built between the 14th and 19th centuries and has the most extensive fortifications in South America. The city’s well-preserved 11-kilometer wall, encompassing the Old Town, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

This colonial town was one of the three most important ports in the West Indies and became a target for pirates as the city flourished.

Churches

Cartagena’s Cathedrals, Churches and Chapels

Bordering the Caribbean, Cartagena is a mix of modern revelry and Old World reverence. The region’s religious history is seen and felt in the spectacularly beautiful cathedrals and more modest temples, chapels and churches throughout the region

 

 

Cathedral of Cartagena de Indias

One of the oldest Episcopal churches in the Americas, the Cathedral was designed by Simón González. Construction began in 1577, replacing a humble cathedral of straw and reeds. In 1586, while the church was still under construction, it was attacked by the English privateer Francis Drake, which caused severe damage and delayed its completion. The building was finished in 1612.

San Pedro Claver Church

Located at San Pedro Claver´s square, this striking coral stone cathedral, built by the Jesuits in the 17th century, honors the priest St. Pedro Claver, the first saint of the new world for his work with slaves. History buffs will enjoy a visit to its archeological museum.

Santo Domingo Church

Situated in front of Plaza Santo Domingo, this is the city’s oldest church. Built in the late 16th century, its façade is of particular significance to architecture buffs.
