Convento de la Popa Cartagena

Established in 1607, it was once the site of a devil-worshiping and goat sacrifices by runaway slaves.

Convento de la Popa Cartagena

It was occupied by George Washington's brother Lawrence Washington's troops during Admiral Vernon's siege of Cartagena in 1741. There is a small chapel with photographs commemorating the Pope's visit to the convent in the 1980's. The 360 degree view is astounding, and the architecture inside absolutely beautiful.
