This souvenir market has good items, some quite unique and good prices if you haggle. Definitely worth a look.

It's one of a couple of squares that you'll encounter during our walk. Imagine going back in time 300 years ago and the slaves that were brought in and you get a very different sense of this area than what you see now.

You can't go in or anything unless you have city business. Nice plant nursery in one of the walk throughs. Not sure why the mayors office is listed as a site on here.

This is a nice spot you will encounter inevitably on your historic city walk which usually starts near the clock tower. The colonial buildings and the layout are nice but likely you will just walk through this area.

Most attractive square, gateway from the port through which the traders and slaves would have entered the town. Important building and a must see.

You can't go inside, you just can have a quick view and take an awesome picture of your visit to this beautiful city. It is one of the most iconic places in Cartagena.
