A December full of traditions...

The romantic streets of the Historic Center of Cartagena de Indias shine with the fascinating Christmas ornamentation that decorates houses and monuments such as the walls and the Clock Tower. When December arrives, joy is experienced in every corner of the city. Tourists, attracted by the particular traditions of the people of Cartagena, choose to enjoy the last month of the year in the amazing ‘Heroica’.
The houses, shopping malls, squares and parks are decorated with lights of different colors, with Christmas trees or well recreated nativity scenes that recreate the night of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a colorful spectacle that catches the attention of anyone who walks through the Historic Center of the city. People can’t help but take pictures with the giant Christmas trees that are placed in different parts of the Walled City, these and other sculptures with various figures are attractive to locals and visitors.
From the India Catalina Park to the limits between Downtown and Bocagrande you will be able to contemplate an amazing Christmas lighting. Decorated for this special season, the Historic Center becomes everyone’s favorite.
On the other hand, ‘El Niño Dios’, which refers to the newborn Jesus Christ, is the most important figure of the Christmas season in Cartagena, to whom children ask for the gifts they want to receive, celebrating novenas in honor of his birth with songs accompanied by tambourines. The joy of the coast is present at every moment of the year.
