Since 1953 it has housed the remains of Rodrigo de Bastidas, the founder of the city.

Gabriel García Márquez Library

In 2018, the Bank of the Republic named its Santa Marta library as: Gabriel García Márquez Library, through an official act, in recognition of the literary legacy of the Nobel Prize winner García Márquez, a symbol of the nation and Magdalena.


The free tours do not have a fixed price, but at the end each person gives the guide the amount they consider based on their satisfaction.




It is important to wear comfortable shoes for the walk.

Also bring sunscreen.

And a smile.
