Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas is a well-preserved castle that sits on a hill in Cartagena, Colombia. With its initial construction in 1536, the structure was originally designed by Antonio de Arevalo to be a Spanish colonial fortress with miles of tunnels, chambers, trenches, batteries and parapets. Today, the triangular castle serves as the major location for the Colombian government's social and political events.
The Castillo, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country, has a beautiful grand entrance and sweeping views of Cartagena. Open to the public, visitors can enjoy historical audio and guided tours.Places nearby:
