Batería del Ángel San Rafael is just one of many fortifications that constituted the defenses surrounding Cartagena, Colombia. This citadel has a unique location requiring a ferry ride, then a walk through the small town, and finally a climb up a mosaic pathway. There are also several tunnels to explore, bats to avoid, and views to enjoy.
Know Before You Go
You will need to take the local ferry from Cartegena. There is a park entrance fee. Bring water. Entry into the battery is free, just walk up from the ferry dock to a large road featuring a school, take a right and walk until you see the entrance to the tunnel.
