Muelle de los Pegasos and el Camell贸n de los Martires - Monument Cartagena - Colombia

Along the walkways separating El Centro from Getseman铆, you will find some interesting monuments marking Cartagena鈥檚 independence. Three impressive bronze pegasus statues look out to the sea beside the city convention center. Between the Centro de Convenciones and Parque del Centenario is the grand Camell贸n de los M谩rtires (Walk of the Martyrs, whose centerpiece is a lovely white statue of a woman also looking out to sea. These monuments together come to represent the peace and independence so earnestly fought for and won. They serve as an affirmation that the plunder that once plagued the city is long past.
