Plaza Fernandez Madrid - Review
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.

Plaza Fernandez Madrid, Cartagena Reviews
The food in the Italian place in te corner Has Awful food for an overpriced place! The worst food and service I had in Cartagena! The microwave lasagna I have at home tastes better than the one here.
Great location, chill atmosphere, and diff restaurants to have a nice dinner!!!
One of the many great, small parks in Cartagena. It provides abundance shade and had been recently renovated. There are a number of vendors at the park. Usually a happening place in the evening.
So much to see in the walled city of Cartagena. Live jazz band in the evenings. Great atmosphere.
Lovely place great atmosphere so nice to just sit
