Convento De La Popa - Review
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
One of the highest places in Cartagena overlooking the city. It closed earlier than we expected so we had to rush through but it was a very peaceful place oozing with historical references and a celebration of the Catholic faith. We were hoping to catch the sun setting but we had to leave before the sun went down. Still, a beautiful view and one of the most stunning garden courtyards I saw in the city. Bring food and drink - there isn't much to purchase there. A small gift shop is available with very reasonably priced rosaries and rosary bracelets.
This place offers an impressive hilltop view of Cartagena. It is about a 25 minute trip outside of the old city and should only cost you 22-25 COP. The convent was quiet on this day, but I'm sure it can get busy. The cost was 10 COP to get in and there are some quant rooms. Please see my 360 degree pictures.

Good view if you dont speak spanish better off just stopping at the top of the hill for a photo. Also dont let your taxi go super difficult to get one there later. We had to walk down the hill
The most amazing view of the city is seen from La Popa. The convent is full of amazing history and artifacts.
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.
