About these beautiful doors 🚪🌺... Some Cartagena doors have small windows protected by a set of metal bars to see who is knocking; others have panels that open near the top in order to let in the breeze. That would have been an essential feature for homes in this steamy city in the days before air conditioning. Inner patios or courtyards are another heat-releasing design feature of colonial Spanish architecture. You can catch a glimpse of some of these open spaces behind Cartagena doors. These courtyards contain seating, maybe a hammock, and often trellises of plants or flowers, like the ever-present purple or white bougainvillea. Flowers also adorn the beautiful balconies, another common Cartagena building feature
Meet Gertrudis, she weighs 650 kilos.... Fernando Botero is a Colombian figurative artist and sculptor. His signature style, also known as "Boterismo", depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor. He is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America and his art can be found in places around the world, such as Park Avenue in New York City and the Champs-Élysées in Paris #Botero#Cartagena#Art
Palenqueras are fruit seller women originating from Palenque de San Basilio. In the past, they would walk every day from their village to sell fruit in hand-woven baskets on the streets of Cartagena. Their brightly coloured dresses made them real icons of Cartagena 🤗 #palenqueras#cartagena#happylady#beautifuldestination 🇨🇴
