Las Bovedas - Review
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
Many shops, some have really nice handmade items. Food vendors outside, and if your are lucky you might see a local dance troop.
Tourists trap! Stay away. Or pass by just to admire the interesting architecture
Stall after stall of the same old tourist trinkets at inflated prices. Wandering through here made me feel sad for the people working here and for the tourists alike.
Interesting area of shops. I spent my brief time there in a matador museum bar drinking a beer. I enjoyed it all alone.
The tourist souvenir shops at the former dungeons. Each shop carries just about the same items, ignore the annoying hawkers that set up outside the stores trying to sell their junk.
