This place is the start of one of the nicest streets in Cartagena. The city hall is there, as is the museum of the roman theater. The architecture is quite nice.

Our Seabourn cruise docked in the marina and a tour group of us began our walk through the promenade. Passing through the Carlos III wall and the sculptures in the grass, we made our way to the dazzlingly white City of Oz (as near a comparison as I can make). Everything here gleamed with clean, bright beauty. The path is even paved in the center with a center line of blue tiles.

Although we did not have time to tour the Town Hall itself, there was plenty to admire from the outside. It is purely Modernistic and reflects pretty much the style of the day. Built in 1907, it flouts all the curves, adornment, floral decoration, and accoutrements marking the beauty of streamlined Art Deco that Modernism became.

The plaza is wide, the stone paving looks to be a soft cream-colored "follow the yellow brick road" entry into town. How perfect. One of the nicest visages into any town we have visited yet.

Do take some time to admire the fine details on the exterior of the Town Hall. There is a beautiful female head wearing a crown of 3 towers, a clock tower built into Town Hall, and all three sides of the building are a bit different.

This is the central plaza or square of ancient Cartagena. Whether you arrive by cruise both or came by land, it s good place to start your tour. There is a tourist information office at the end of the plaza facing seawards.

Take a beer or a glass of wine on one of the terraces in front of this building and enjoy the architecture.

Went here recently when visiting Cartegena. This is a wonderful square with beautiful old buildings. Plenty of things going on and lots of cafes and restaurants. A delightful place.

Pedestrianised square and close to harbour. We stayed at nearby hotel NH which was lovely. The Toen Hall building is just stunning and very dominant in the square. Some lovely bars and restaurants in the area.

This is a pretty and impressive plaza - better than most, not as good as some. It's at the heart of the city and adjoins the sea front so rather than struggle to find it .... it's really hard to avoid it, not that I'd suggest you do that !

Take it all in and then pop into a side street for a beer or otherwise - as it's culturally / architecturally and service-wise better and product-wise cheaper. Or wander on to the sea front - similarly pretty.

Lots of character, history and culture about and it's the kind you stumble across whilst wandering about rather than seek out. You can't really go wrong in and around this locale.

We came from a nearby small town looking for dinner in Cartagena. It's to our surprise to find such a large plaza with a long street of shops, restaurants and bars. We ended up eating an earlier dinner in the plaza.
