Unfortunately the church wasn't open when we went to visit in the day, cute little plaza area, not much else to see here but in walking distance from everywhere else. If interested there is a street not far from here called Calle de la Sierpe with beautiful street art.

is highly recommended in the evening. Lot of happenings of different kind. Delicious street food available nearby. The church itself is not so decorated as many other churches. On Monday evening April 11th there was a junior choir to perform very beautiful Colombian folksongs, they really could sing.

This church is a block away from our hotel - seems to be busy, always something going on. We've seen two weddings, various masses (I guess, I'm not Catholic), and there's often music going on. Pretty church, dates back to the 1600s according to the info on the outside.

This is an interesting part of the walled city and you will find the church interesting, if it is open byt the restaurants and places around here are worth a visit.

We were staying two minutes away from this intimate but suddenly "happening" square and ate dinner twice at restaurants lining it. Both times the church that is at its center was shut up tight--although the trampoline set up at its doors was very active! (Frustratingly, we hardly ever found an open church during our roaming around Cartagena.) The third time... More

Every evening around 6 or 7 we headed to this square . Lots of action. We never stayed for the late night action. But we heard it was very good. Locals just living their lives. Buskers. Kids playing soccer. Little kids with their parents learning to walk. Checkers. Delicious vendors all around for great prices. Sitting here and taking it... More

What this square sets it outside from the rest is that it is surrounded by street art. They are also several galleries. We went there expecting a free tour but the guy never showed up, but quite happily made our own way around

I never made it inside this church This is the happening location for people watching in the area. Come here at night and you will see locals, back packers, street vendors, and bicycle clubs meeting. Fun!

We biked through this area and enjoyed the mural art, the recycled bottle decorations in alley and the entertainment at the church. Fun vibe, less polished, more locals hanging at their houses - even danced with some of them.
