About Monumento A Los Zapatos Viejos, Cartagena
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 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.
Usually very crowded. Not many shaded places to sit around. Good for a five minute visit.
Spectacular coastal city with many historical sites and restaurants galore..
Beautiful sculpture! Apart from the photo inside the shoe there's nothing special to do around.
Very nice place to walk around
