Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas

Carrera 17 # 31-2 a 31-100, Cartagena De Indias (Distrito Turístico Y Cultural), Bolivar, Colombia

Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas is the most robust fort the Spanish ever built and it still looks impenetrable. It’s been impressively restored and dominates a slight hill with its stony bulk.  Visitors are allowed into some of the interior corridors and tunnels so if you have a flashlight in your luggage, bring it to the fort. There’s little shade so try to arrive when the fort opens to beat the heat. On weekends this attraction can get crowded, especially on Sunday when Colombians can enter for free (17,000 COP, open daily 8 am to 6 pm). Indagare members can contact our bookings team to arrange for a private guide.
