La Popa

Best vantage point for impressive panoramic views of Cartagena.

Take a trip up to the Covento de la Popa Monastry whose hilltop perch offers unbeatable panoramic views of the city below. The climb (best done in taxi) takes you through residential districts of Cartagena as you zigzag your way up the hillside to the sumit of this 150m high mount. The interior of the monastery displays some beautiful iconography and a picturesque, flower filled courtyard. Highly recommended, if only for the views.
