City walks: From Santo Domingo Square to Teatro Adolfo Mejía: a pink white pearl

Indeed, a city walk in this little old town can be made in one day, but I recommend you to walk slowly and enjoy every detail and take your time. As you leave behind the Santo Domingo Square and take the street Calle de la Factoria and walk towards the sea you, and turn right at the end of the street you fill see a beautiful building. This elegant building which looks like a pink-white pearl here at the corner of Cartagena’s walls was once a church; it was the Church of La Merced. Built in 1911 by architect Luis Felipe Franco it is a Republican building with neoclassical style. Today it’s used by the graduates of The University of Cartagena.
