About Plaza Fernandez Madrid, Cartagena

Right outside the Iglesia de Santo Toribio you’ll find this small and pleasant plaza. It is named after José Fernández Madrid, an early 19th century Colombian poet who became famous for his patriotic poems on war, independence and heroism. There is a monument statue dedicated to the man in the middle of the square. In other respects, the square is just one of the many charming little corners in the Old Town of Cartagena. Take respite from the heat in the shade of the trees; find a spot to sit and people watch; pop inside one of the surrounding cafes for a cold coffee. There might even be a busker or two performing for you. The square is nearly as lively at night, and is usually prettily lit up.
