Cartagena, Day 3 (Part 2)

My final day in Cartagena was spent at the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas (subject of the previous post), and then taking in a few other attractions within El Centro.  

Plaza de los Coches

Iglesia de San Pedro Claver

Looking into the room where San Pedro Claver died.

If I'm correct, this is the room in which San Pedro Claver died.

On the other side of this room is San Pedro Claver's bedroom.

Back at my hotel, it was time to meet the hotel parrot.

I think I stirred him up a bit.

He seemed intrigued by my fast shutter speed.


The next day I left Cartagena for Bogota.  Day 1 coming soon.
