Dome of Iglesia de San Pedro Claver in Old Town, Cartagena, Colombia

The dome of the Church of San Pedro Claver is a prominent landmark in the skyline of El Centro, the historic district of Cartagena. The paint is peeling and it shows signs of disrepair. Perhaps this gorgeous yet humble façade is a fitting tribute to San Pedro Claver. This Jesuit priest spent 40 years of his life greeting, caring for and baptizing over 300,000 African slaves as they entered Cartagena’s port until he died in 1654.
