Cathedral of San Pedro Claver (Iglesia de San Pedro Claver)
Cartagena’s Cathedral of San Pedro Claver (Iglesia de San Pedro Claver) immortalizes the life of Saint Pedro Claver, one of the first human rights pioneers in the Americas. The austere stone facade of the cathedral alludes to a peaceful interior, where visitors can pay their respects to the remains of the saint, which are visible through a gilded glass case.

The Basics
A prime location in the midst of Cartagena’s old town has secured the cathedral’s place on multiple sightseeing tours. Visit on a tour that focuses on UNESCO World Heritage sites, or stop by on an evening horse-and-carriage ride. Alternatively, walking tours provide a more intimate experience of the old town, and help first-time visitors orient themselves in the Caribbean city.

How to Get There

Located on Calle San Pedro, the Cathedral of San Pedro Claver (Iglesia de San Pedro Claver) is about a 2-minute walk from Plaza Bolivar, the cultural and historical hub of the city. To stay cool in Cartagena’s sweltering daytime heat, opt for a city tour that includes air-conditioned transport.

History of a Human Rights Pioneer

Although the cathedral was constructed in 1575, its namesake, Saint Pedro Claver Corberó, didn’t arrive in Cartagena, then a slave-trading hub, until 1610. A Spanish Jesuit priest, Pedro was horrified by the treatment of African captives, who were bought and sold on what’s now Plaza de los Coches. He baptized slaves in the cathedral’s courtyard, and believed that they deserved all the rights held by other Christian citizens of the Spanish Empire.
Address: Plaza de San Pedro Claver, Cra. 4 ##30-01, Cartagena, Bolivar, Colombia
