Wander through the tunnels of the San Felipe de Barajas Castle to discover the interior of the “guardian of Cartagena.” The Spaniards sought to fend off British attacks, and in 1657 they finished building this fortress on the hill of San Lazaro, thus taking control of the only access point to the city from the mainland. Great pictures of the bay can be taken from the castle.
