Prior to NH Galeria's arrival thick-skinned 'art dealers' peddled colourful Fernado Botero fakes to tourists on street corners. These days serious collectors can find works by the very best Colombian and international artists in this bastion of good taste.
Choose from a seminal collection of paintings by Alejandro Obregon, the unique gilded textiles of Olga de Amaral, the thought-provoking works of Ruby Rumie or the rhythmic beauty of Sophia Vari's monumental sculptures.
It could be the best investment you ever make on holiday.
Exhibitions rotate every two months.
Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city.
Centro has lost none of its importance thanks to the universal lure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area.
Cartagena's finest hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century.
The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze and first whiff of pirates. Today only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list can afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.
