Cartagena is truly an artist’s city and is responsible for some of the most influential contemporary artists in the country.
Stay at Casa San Agustín, an exquisite and welcoming boutique hotel in Cartagena’s Old Town.
With original frescoes in the library and centuries-old wood-beamed ceilings, Casa San Agustín’s architecture evokes the city’s rich history of the 17th century. The hotel’s Alma restaurant is one of the best in town, and we always recommend reserving a table well in advance.
Our specialist art guide will take you on a creative journey through the streets of the city. Start in the lively neighbourhood of Getsemani, where street artists make their name (there is even the option to take part in a graffiti workshop). Meet local artists and the curators of some of the top art galleries in Cartagena.
