A half-hour stop will be made at the Fort of San Felipe de Barajas, a 17th-century construction which is the most important work of Spanish Military engineering in South America. Next, it’s on to Las Bovedas (The Dungeons) for about 20 minutes of handicraft shopping. Here, local artisans display their works of art and handicrafts for you. Then, we'll pass through Simón Bolivar Square and the Inquisition Palace before continuing on to the Church of San Pedro Claver, the patron saint of slaves.
Our next stop will be to a famous jewelry store and the only one in town that does not offer a commission to guides, which we find excellent! Here, you'll find Colombia’s famous native gem, the emerald.
