I knew that Cartagena de Indias, Colombia was going to be colourful, I knew that it was going to be full of ornate balconies and windows, I knew that every house would look different.
I didn’t realise just quite how beautiful it would be! The city is full of charm, it oozes atmosphere and it really is the most incredible place to just wander! Probably around half of my photos from our honeymoon are of the gorgeous houses (maybe that’s a slight exaggeration but yeah, I took a lot of photos of houses!)
The old part of the city is famous for it’s colonial buildings that come in so many different colours. The beauty of the city is that some are brightly painted whilst others are crumbling outside. The balconies look into the narrow streets and the walls and windows are often decorated with ivy and brightly coloured flowers. It really is so picturesque.
We stayed in the old city for six nights of the nine nights we were away, and spent each day wandering around just taking in all of the charm that the city has to offer. This is one of those posts where the photos will do all the talking, as they can better describe how wonderful Cartagena de Indias is.
During the day, Cartagena consumes you with all of the colours and by night it changes into a night time wonderland – I’ll be posting about that next week!
What do you think? Where’s the most charming place you’ve been?
