About Convento De La Popa, Cartagena

This monastery, up on the highest hill around, is among the most iconic places of the city. Inside the convent is a beautiful courtyard, one of the prettiest cloisters in the whole country. It was founded by Father Alonso de la Cruz, an Augustinian monk. Much of the history of the convent has been lost in the numerous invasions. But there are a few important highlights. See the statue of the martyred Padre Alonso García de Paredes. In the convent chapel, see the revered image of the Virgin of Candelaria, who is also the patroness of the city. And keep your camera ready for the greatest views the city has to offer of the sea and the surrounding lands.

Convento De La Popa, Cartagena Reviews

  • A historic site that should part of a visit to Cartagena . Most of the information plaques are only in Spanish -have a guide give you the tour of La Popa. View of the city is great. Book a round trip taxi to prevent a lengthy wait at the top.

  • Whether you're religious or not, this place is worth seeing just for the views of the city below. The Monastery is beautiful and well-preserved. There's a couple of vendors outside trying to sell the usual stuff but they leave you alone if you tell them, "no". Add this place to your list!

  • Best views in Cartagena. Well worth the drive and the $4 admission.

  • I thought it was worth it for the view here! You get to see the city of Cartagena from a high point. Truly breathtaking. It will cost you around 10000 COP to get into the monastery area to see the view. Must come here by a tour bus, a taxi or a uber. Walking here is not advisable because one, you're going uphill, and two, to put it in perspective, it's an hour walk from the fortress.

  • This place have great view and religious experience. History About the cartagena's Indians, agustinianos recoletos monks and María candelaria mother of God.
