San Pedro Claver Church

Recommended
The Plaza de San Pedro Claver is dominated by the imposing Iglesia de San Pedro Claver, built in 1580 then rebuilt in 1654. San Pedro Claver Corberó (1580-1654), a Jesuit missionary and veritable pioneer of human rights, arrived in Cartagena at the age of 20 and dedicated the 40 years of his ministry to redeeming slaves. A small museum devoted to the holy man and his work can be found next to the church.
