Cartagena is a beautiful city that guards the secrets of history in its walls. Our Spanish school in Cartagena is situated in the Historical Center of Getsemaní. It is located very close to the walled city, in front of Plaza del Pozo (Well Square). This is one of the most typical places in Cartagena de Indias, and has got a history that gets lost in the saved “times’ night”. This square is a peaceful place, and it has a colonial well, where the women of the neighborhood came to get water for their households. With the time the well did not have any water more and it was covered by the town authorities.
There is also art in this square. Edgardo José Carmona Vergara, sculptor, works with iron and makes from it extraordinary pieces, that show the life in Cartagena and express the Caribbean way of living.
This area was very important for Cartagena to get its independence from Spanish domination, occurred on November 11th 1811, where free mulattos and black people had a main role. It is a hot spot, just a few steps of Plaza de la Trinidad (Trinity Square), where you find the known Beer House and also the modern Juan Valdez Café at Getsemani Conventions Center, just three blocks away from our school, where are held all kinds of international events and fairs.
Few steps away you find a beautiful bay view and enjoy a nice stroll early mornings or afternoons. There you can enjoy the magical Caribbean sunset.
