“An aristocrat’s palace dedigned to communicate an impressive majesty”
Maître de Maison
- Claude Pimont
It is said that Casa Pestagua is the most beautiful house in Cartagena. Painted ceilings, carved stone windows, courtyards and royal palms... this Moorish-inspired colonial palace was built in the eighteenth century, in time of splendour for the city and Spanish galleons laden with gold and precious stones.
Under their double ceilings, the rooms are unmistakably romantic; the pond invites you to refresh yourself amidst a beautiful exotic garden, whilst the restaurant under the arcades inspires aristocratic meals. Claude Pimont, the charismatic Maître de Maison, welcomes you with such warmth you will feel as if you were the actual Count de Pestagua!
