Latin America Conference networking tour

Date – Friday 23 September 2022
Time – 14.00 – 18.00

During the networking tour, we will visit Getsemani which is considered the bohemian part of the walled city, decorated with artistic murals and paintings.

We will then continue onto Manga; a province of Cartagena, which houses the Fort San Sebastián del Pastelillo and mansions with 20th century architecture.

Following this, we will take in wonderful views of the city from atop of the Mount la Popa, as well as the Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria de la Popa monastery. Heading down from Mount la Popa, we will then travel to the historic Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, which dates back to 1536.

Lastly, we stroll along the inside of the walled city and take in the beautiful streets and plazas of the city, as well as the many 17th century churches and houses. These feature the wooded balconies and flower decorations, often associated with the beautiful city of Cartagena.
