Cartagena city in Colombia used to be a very rich port city – where the silver and gold and treasures of the Americas were stolen and exported by the Spanish back to Europe in the 15-16th century.

Some of the magnificent houses, and fortresses have been restored and are widely visited today.

In Cartagena, you find treasures of statues, grand colonial houses, guarded by giant timber doors and to complete the illusion of grandeur – you are going to need a KNOCKER like this.
