Aside from colonial architecture with Andalusian style roots, there is Plaza Aduana with its many monuments, the Fernando Botero statue in the vibrant Plaza Santo Domingo, with dancers and performers frequenting the green and shady Plaza Bolivar. Just outside of the walled city is Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, a grand impenetrable fortress with a network of tunnels that has been protecting the city for hundreds of years.
