Built in a luxurious Spanish colonial style that dates from the 17th century, the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara is a perfect blend of classic elegance and modern comfort. With its ornate balconies and colonnades surrounding a palm-lined central courtyard, it’s an updating of the opulence that the Spanish aristocrats enjoyed when they lived in this pearl of the Caribbean.
The Sofitel Legend was originally a convent, built for the Clarisa nuns in 1621. Transformed into a luxury lodging in 1995, it is today one of the elite hotels of the world, with countless awards to its name and decorations by the Colombian artist Fernando Botero in its Presidential Suite. When you stay, you’ll experience a treatment that’s truly viceregal, in the heart of Cartagena’s beautiful walled city.
