History Museum
“Once the Inquisition Palace were heretics and alleged witches were tried and condemned in Cartagena it is now the MUHCA or historical museum of Cartagena where important events are held such as the first signature of the peace agreement with the FARC. Only the building alone is worth a visit as it is a fine example of colonial architecture. But if you wish to know about Cartagena's history, which is fascinating, it's a great place to start.”
