Botero's influence on Cartagena
Plaza de Santo Domingo is one of the most attractive plazas in the city, both by day and night. During the day, its a great place to relax, enjoy drinks and people watch. At night, it comes alive with music and dancing. Fernando Botero, a well-known Colombian artist, contributed one of his "heavy" sculptures to adorn the Plaza. Overlooking the plaza stands the church of Santo Domingo, built in 1539, its the oldest in Cartagena.
