13 Jul SAN DIEGO SQUARE
SCREAMS OF SILENCE
It was one of the many places that witnessed the most inhuman actions to which a person can be subjected. In its memory keeps the silence of African black men who had no voice. There, as in other places of the walled city, the ruinous fate of those men who were transported from Africa, hunted like wild animals and brought to a continent randomly marked, was sealed.
Let yourself get caught by its multicultural environment is almost inevitable, it gathers gastronomic tastes and cultural expressions that are there to the delight those who visit it. Its colorful surroundings gladden the soul. It is one of those places that have magic and can make you want to return to the sculptural Cartagena de Indias.
The one that I have spoken so much and so much I have reviewed is the Plaza de San Diego or San Diego Square, located in the heart of the traditional San Diego neighborhood of the historic center of Cartagena, referred to because in its heart is the Superior School of Fine Arts, an educational icon of the city.
Like many other places and the events that occurred at the time in the historic city, today what we know as Plaza de San Diego had a list of names. It was in 1608 when the convent of San Diego was founded where is now located the Superior School of Fine Arts, and to which all the locals of the time called it San Diego square, surviving categorically to tradition.
