Plaza de Bolívar - City Plaza Cartagena - Colombia

Plaza Bolívar is the ideal place for relaxation in the center of the old city. At lunchtime, locals take advantage of the shade offered around the center statue of Simon Bolívar on his horse, and the tourists sit down to rest their feet and people-watch. Women dressed in bright, typical Caribbean dresses balance bowls of fruit atop their heads, ready to whip up a delightful tropical salad. Cheap food stalls are around the Plaza, as well as some of the city’s best known sites, such as the Catedral, the Museo de Oro Zenú and the Palacio de la Inquisición.
