28 Iglesia de Santo Toribio in Old Town, Cartagena, Colombia

Iglesia de Santo Toribio de Mangroviejo is one of the smallest churches in Old Town, but no less historic. Construction began by the Spaniards in 1666 and was completed about 65 years later. Its humble, colonial façade features a bell wall characteristic of a Spanish missionary. If you stop to visit, make sure you see the cannonball displayed in a glass urn. The ballistic went through Saint Toribio Church in 1741 during a failed British attack of the city.
