    Recently I had the opportunity to enjoy a couple days visit to the Historic Old Town of Cartagena de Indias, a city on the northern coast of Colombia facing the Caribbean sea. It was a major trading port, especially for precious metals. Gold and silver from the mines in the New Grenada and Peru were loaded in Cartagena on the galleons bound for Spain via Habana.

    Cartagena's 500-hundred year-old coral stone forts and great parts of its waled city are admirably intact and represent some of the finest examples of civil and military architecture of the Spanish colonial times.

    I spent most of the time of my two days weekend using my Olympus E-M5, an Oly 12-40 f/2.8 with the help of an 9-18 f/4-5.6, a 40-150 f/4-5.6 and a 75-300 f/4.8-6.7

    Some ramson images of the old city, I hope you enjoy it as I did: Cartagena is a really wonderful place!

    Great photos. Looks like a beautiful area brimming to the rim with cultural flavor. I love this type of mini photo exposition. Thanks for sharing :)
