Walled City & Old City


Recommended Posts

Yes, they are one and the same. From this page: http://www.nineofcups.com/Articles/cartagena_the_beautiful.pdf


"La Ciudad Amurallada (Walled City), also called Centro Historico or just Centro."


Thanks for the link to the great article about the Walled City/Old City. So many times I came across references to either the Walled City or the Old City and wanted to make sure they were one in the same. Thanks again I can't wait to get there.

There are different opinions about inside-the-port (expensive, possibly English-speaking "cartel") taxi drivers vs. outside-the-port (cheap, possibly reckless) taxi drivers. You can get more information by searching this forum for "taxi". Also, this might be of help:
