Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice plaza in the middle of the walled city. Surrounded by tons of stores and restaurants. There are tables in the middle of the plaza so you sit and eat and at night, enjoy the music.

Another plaza or square with eateries and a few things to see including a sculpture by Fernando Botero and a Church. Of course you will pass it when walking around the Walled City so take a look for sure. It comes alive more in the evening.

Probably the most active place within the walled city especially on weekend nights, the square is a lively seeing surrounded by bars and music venues, highly recommend "Bourbon Street" yes as the famous namesake in New Orleans, is a 2 story music hall packed with plenty to do or sit outdoors in one of the many bars.
I was there back in April 2017

A nice small plaza with a couple of restaurants with outside seating. Nothing special except perhaps the Bo-tero statue. Statues of his have cropped up in some surprising cities we've visited.

Plaza Santo Domingo was one of my favourites in Cartagena. It is big and open and faces the impressive facade of the stunner of a church after which the Plaza is named.
There is a Botero statue in one corner by the church, one of the most visited statues in the city. You are supposed to run its front for luck and its back to ensure your return!
Right in the heart of the old town, I kept returning to it as it really especially beautiful.

One of the most important squares of the walled city but very neglected, dirty and smelly. Is a shame that all cartagena is son neglected and damaged by massive tourism
