During the last phase of military construction during the colonial era, these 23 vaults and 47 porticos were built into the 15 metre thick walls of the city. Finished in 1796, they were initially used as storerooms and later turned into a jail. If this historical tidbit is not enough to for you to visit them, then you might as well go for the excellent tourist and crafts shops inside each of the vaults today. After you are finished with shopping, you will find on the right side of the structure a flight stairs that leads to the roof. This broad expanse has a lovely view of the Caribbean Sea. Take your photographs. This is the best place in the city to pick up a souvenir.

Las Bovedas , Cartagena Reviews - Write a Review
Merchants were actually nice at this location, unlike the other street vendors
If you like craft shopping, head here. I loved the ancient architecture of the old dungeons and the sea views
A very nice place to walk around, watch the walls, the sea, and also buy some souvenirs, there are several shops. There are bathrooms, but they are paid.
One of Cartagena's most important historic places.
Nice stores, although all the stores seem very similar
