We are going to walk around interesting places in DownTown while getting beautiful & professional photographies of Cartagena's magical, colorful and ancient streets and corners. You will have the opportunity to be in an historical tour of the city while getting beautiful portraits and the most important, having fun! Once we finish the tour, I will be sharing with you all the photos taken through a link in which you can decide the ones you liked the most. You will have 1 day to do that. Then, you'll choose the shots you liked the most and within three working days (starting right after the day you have to select them). So you will have 10 photographies taken with my professional camera in full resolution completely edited shared through Drive in the 3 working days after the tour. For extra photos we'd arrange a super good price once we finished the tour. You can check out my IG profile: charliesphography to know a little bit more about me & my job.

Stop At: Cathedral Basilica of St. Catherine of Alexandria

The Cathedral of Cartagena is a majestic place with an incomparable attractive beauty. Its construction began in 1575, but in 1586, when only the tower remained to be built, the pirtata Francis Drake partially destroyed it. The resumption of construction took place between 1598 and 1612 with the additions of various things, such as the very high Florentine-style dome and the addition of marble on the main facade. You definitely want to have a photo taken in here.

Duration: 5 minutes

Pass By: Casa del Marquez de Valdehoyos

Before reaching the Wall through Calle de la Factoria, you can see an excellent example of an aristocrat's house, the Casa del Marquez de Valdehoyos, which mentions the well-living of the previous colonial nobility with splendid rooms, patios and gardens. This house was built during the 17th century by the Marquis of Valdehoyos who had the privilege of importing slaves and flour.

Stop At:

Located in the heart of the historic center of Cartagena, this park is adorned with majestic trees and surprisingly tall. Water fountains bring great freshness to urbanists and visitors to rely on containers made of sprouts. In the midst of this vegetation is built the statue of the liberator Simon Bolivar, sitting on his horse, which was inaugurated on November 11, 1896. During the tour around the park, several interesting places are present to take great photographies.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At:

The Jesuits created the construction of the monastery and church of San Pedro Claver in the 17th century, and it was originally called San Ignacio de Loyola. The facade of the church was made, like most of the buildings of the old city, in coral stones, which are famous in the region. If you visit Cartagena, you definitely have to have a photo taken in this place.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At:

This is an strategical corner to have a great view of the city. Definitely a great place for an amazing shot. The first wall built in this section was built on Jesuit land, the religious ended up drilling the wall and building their college and cloister on it, thus invalidating its defensive function. After a dispute that lasted thirty years, it was decided to move the wall to the outside by creating a street that would allow the walkway between the school and the future wall, with the Company in charge of paying the costs of the new construction.
