Monumento A Los Zapatos Viejos - Review
Poet Luis Carlos Lopez wrote a sonnet comparing his affection for his nation as similar to the affection he felt for an old pair of boots, and how he would never give either up. After the poem became famous, the sculptor Hector Lombana Pineres ended up crafting these bronze shoes as a monument to that sentiment. The toe of one of the shoes is kept shiny by the many visitors who take a seat while posing for photographs. You can actually climb into the shoes for a picture. Vendors peddling fruits and crafts throng about the place. It’s an amusing stop, but nothing worth going out of your way to see.

Monumento A Los Zapatos Viejos, Cartagena Reviews
It's a really nice place and pic that you want in your album. Remember to visit this attraction at non-sun hours, because it gets really hot.
Monumento tradicional de Cartagena. En las noches se reúnen conjuntos vallenatos, hay venta de artesanías y frituras típicas.
The shoes are a cool monument, but it wasn't maintained very well.
Los Zapatos Viejos. A tourist trap. One can't help being on guard. All locals seemed to be about nothing but figuring out how to get fleece the tourist. Awful place
It's behind the castle, otherwise don't bother. Quick photo op being inside the shoe. Vendors bug you and hog what little shade is in thet small area so no reason to stick around after.
