Casa de Gabriel García Márquez - Historical Building Cartagena - Colombia

Gabriel García Márquez’s house in San Diego has not been turned into a museum or tourist attraction. If it were, it would be one of the most popular sites in Cartagena. Still, the house that inspired the writing of one of his most famous novels, Love in the Time of Cholera, still stands today near Baluarte de Santa Clara. From the 5th floor terrace of Hotel Santa Clara you can even get a peak of his old courtyard.

Tierra Magna ( has a recorded walking tour ($36, in five languages) of Cartagena sites related to Gabriel García Márquez and his work. For more information, ask at Tierra Magna's kiosk at Templo Santo Domingo.
