Adventure Scrapbook - Old City Cartagena
I recently had the opportunity to visit Cartagena, Columbia. I spent my limited time exploring the “Old City,” which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city was established in 1533 by the Spanish explorer Madrileño Don Pedro de Heredia. Much of the original city walls, constructed for protection from pirates, is still intact and encircles the winding cobblestone streets lined with colorful Spanish Colonial architecture. My time in Cartagena was too short, but what I did experience was amazing and I look forward to seeing more.
