About the historic neighborhood of Getsemani:
Getsemani is the most thriving area in Cartagena, the last authentic neighborhood in the old town and yet to be fully gentrified; it is the neighborhood where true “Cartageneros” still live. Getsemani boasts a unique bohemian atmosphere and a neighborhood feel you won’t find elsewhere in the City, mixing history and tradition with with an eclectic offer of trendy bars, restaurants and discos.
Casa Marta is located in front of the historic Iglesia de la Trinidad, the heart of Getsemani where locals and tourists meet and hang out every day.
It was at the Plaza de la Trinidad where Cartagena’s independence from Spain was declared on 11 November 1811; hence the “Getsemanisenses” are fierce people proud of their roots and heroic past. Getsemani is a place full of history and heritage.

Casa Marta é um ambiente familiar onde os anfitriões são extremamente gentis, prestativos e disponíveis. A localização é excelente, numa vizinhança denominada Getsemani ainda dentro da área muralhada de Cartagena, mas numa área muito mais calma e tradicional, ainda genuinamente cartaginesa, à distância de uma pequena caminhada do centro histórico um pouco mais movimentado e turístico.
Very pleasant and welcoming. Very helpful in pointing us to sights in the area and in arranging transportation onward. Good breakfast hours and great location. Beautiful house and neighborhood. Highly recommended.
Ideally situated just steps from a lovely plaza in my favorite part of the city, Getsemani (yet incredibly serene), Casa Marta was a god-send in Cartagena. In addition to Marta's wonderful energy and the casa's amenities, her helpers were a dream, answering the door with a smile and serving up a wonderful range of local breakfast options. They were incredibly helpful, yet never intrusive. I would, without a doubt, upon return to Cartagena, stay at Casa Marta.
