Cartagena is a port city on Colombia's Caribbean coast. By the sea is the walled Old Town, founded in the 16th centure, with square, cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings. With a tropical climate, the city is also a popular beach destination. Reachable by boat are Isla de Barú, with white-sand beaches and palm trees, and the Islas del Rosario, known for their coral reefs.
Most visitors enter the Old Town via the iconic Torre del Reloj (clock tower). Sites within the town walls include the Palace of the Inquisition, now a museum displaying historical artifacts, and Las Bóvedas, an 18th century dungeon housing shops in its former cells. Beyond the walled town, the massive 16-th-centure La Popa Convent, built on a prominent hill. Bayside Calle del Arsenal in the Getsemani neighborhood offers vibrant nightlife, with clubs fueled by salsa dancing and aquardiente, the anise-flavored national spirit.
