Arriving in Cartagena is like traveling back through history witnessing the grand architecture, the vibrant colors and the varied textures that have remained in this mystic walled city since the 16th Century.
The pace is noticeable slow, the energy is smooth and a gentle Latin melody fills the air as you navigate your way through small colonial streets and beautifully lush little squares. It’s right in between two of Cartagena’s most beautiful squares, Plaza de Bolivar and Plaza Santo Domingo, where you find Casa Pestagua, the house of the 18th Century Count of Pestagua.
Walking into Casa Pestagua you can imagine the majestic lifestyle that was once woven into the fabric of this historic house.
The large internal courtyard housing what would have been the stables and the servants’ quarters.
The extra wide staircase leading to what was once Count of Pestagua’s living quarters beautifully trimmed with an inner colonial terrace and a magnificent ballroom.
The rooms are spacious, elegantly designed and simply laid out with antique furniture. This is not a place where you drop your bags and hurry out. It’s a place that invites you to simply linger, lose track of time and forget about your daily routine.
At Casa Pestagua you will have a lot of favorites. Whether it’s taking breakfast in the courtyard, watching sunset from the roof or simply soaking in the lavish marbled airy showers, your time at Casa Pestagua will have all the hallmarks of a lifestyle filled with an effortless sense of luxury.
