Castillo San Felipe de Barajas at Night

By
Real Estate Agent with Real Estate by Design with Keller Williams Realty

A friend of mine is working and traveling in Colombia.  He WAS in Thailand.  What a life, huh?  I thought that it would be good to share some pictures of his travels.  I'd love for other people to get to see some of the things he is seeing.  I will post everything from everyday life stuff to architecture in hopes to share a bit of Colombia with those that have never been. 

 

Castillo San Felipe de Barajas at Night

 

This is a picture of the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas at night.  It is located in the city of Cartagena, Colombia and it is an ancient fortress built to help guard the city from pirates.  Construction started in the 1680's and the project spanned the life of two different architects!
