Property description

This apartment is ideally located in the heart of magnificent colonial Cartagena, which is a very safe area. It's a stone-throw from the 16th century cathedral and also where Sir Francis Drake lived when he captured the city.

Within walking distance: fine restaurants, museums, churches, the beautiful streets of Cartagena, and its fortifications. A bit further out, requiring a taxi ride, the spectacular San Felipe fort and La Popa mountain-top monastery.

Beaches close by.

The apartment itself is well appointed and decorated, ideal for two couples. The building has a lap pool at street level as well as a roof-top sunning and lounging area. It has a doorman at all times.

The daily visit of a cleaning lady is included. She can also be hired to cook lunch.

Nearby travel agencies, or boats on the dock southeast of the apartment, can arrange a boating visit to the bay's fortifications, the Rosario islands, and the Aquarium.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Residing in Santiago, Chile, also in Bogotá, Colombia. Have loved Cartagena for a long, long time.

Why the Owner Chose El Centro, Cartagena de Indias, Bolivar, Colombia:
Colonial, walled, Cartagena is extraordinary - an intimate and magnificent experience. This building is located on the landmark Plaza de Bolívar, diagonal from the Inquisition Palace Museum, the XVIth Century Cathedral, and the Gold Museum.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The lanai of the apartment faces the beautiful dome and spires of San Pedro Claver Church. The building is on the central Plaza de Bolivar or Inquisition Square, although the apartment is on the quiet side of the building, not facing the sometimes noicy square. Ideal location for walking tours of this gem of a colonial city. The building has a lap pool and a sundeck.
