Plaza Santo Domingo Reviews
Los vendedores ambulantes muy amables si no te interesa lo que venden sólo diles no gracias y los meseros están atentos a lo que desees una cerveza fría cae bien a cualquier hora en Cartagena more »Very friendly street vendors if you don't care what they sell just tell them no thanks and the waiters are attentive to what you want a cold beer falls well at any time in Cartagena
Tem sempre apresentações ótimas de artistas autônomos,A noite a praça fica muito animada.Vale a pena. more »It always has great performances of autonomous artists, the night the square is very lively. It's worth it.
A must for the old town. If you plan a walk though the old town don’t miss this spot. Beautiful Santo Domingo church and the statue “Gertrudis” by Fernando Botero are the main sights. It is believed that if you touch the statues breasts you’ll have lasting love relationships... bars and cafes are great places to take some time to appreciate this spot.
Awesome to visit. Got up close with some lovely army lads. Very friendly and had good food
