Where I come from is an exceptional cultural exchange, in which you will experience and learn about Cartagena’s identities and pluriculturalism that resonate in the city’s neighbourhoods. Where I come from provides a glimpse into the rich cultural life of Cartagena’s popular neighbourhoods, as well as into the different social factors that historically excluded them. The aim of this project is to show you from different parts of the city how life in Cartagena has been one of community spirit, struggle and a search for identity. Our experience begins by meeting at the clock tower in the historic center, from there we will travel by public transportation bus to the authentic and popular neighborhood of El Pozón, where the main development of our cultural exchange will take place. During the ride, we will narrate and teach the most important events of the history, its development and the places that stand out along the way. Join us on this adventure!
