Church of Santo Toribio de Mogrovejo


The Church of Santo Toribio de Mogrovejo, one of the last colonial buildings built in Cartagena, houses the only Baroque altarpiece in the city, several murals of colonial paintings, and a bullet that entered the temple in 1741, in the middle of mass. It is located on the corner of Fernández Madrid Park and its construction began in 1666.



This city is an open-air museum, but has more than just culture and history to offer. Cartagena is also a traveler destination for beaches, water sports, and crafts, among other things.
