The space

The house is located in the Historical Center of Cartagena de Indias on the Plaza de La Proclamación with the Cathedral to its right and the Governor’s Palace to the left, and only a block away from Plaza de Bolivar. This majestic colonial mansion, originally built in the 16th century, is being renovated by the famous master Alvaro Barrera, and it is one of the most prestigious and exclusive residences of Cartagena.

The colonial mansion will count only five apartments (from 232 m2 onwards), each with great architectural detail and a contemporary twist. They are designed as large loft spaces with colonial ceilings exceeding five meters’ height. Most of them have a private balcony, terraces and a rooftop mirador. All of them enjoy views of the internal patio pool and share the use of the rooftop swimming pool with solarium.

The renovation of the house has been undertaken by Alvaro Barrera who is recognized worldwide for the renovation and re-design of colonial buildings in South America. Completion o is expected for the end of August 2007.

History & architecture

The entrance is located on the Calle Arzobispado. The hallway is covered in its original floor stone. At the end of the hallway are a series of arches supported by original columns in coralline stone, unique in Cartagena and a testimony of the 16th century origin of the house. The base of the main columns with their stone carved arches is integrated in the vast patio pool on the ground floor that brings freshness and light to all surrounding apartments. Further, a wall of carved stone shows the importance of this mansion which is believed to have been owned by the archbishop of Cartagena because of its location in the area where the first cathedral was built.

For the colonial staircase, the architect recovered the original stones underneath the colonial marble. In a corner of the building is the elevator that takes us to the third floor to the shared pool and solarium on the roof, captive of the sun and the afternoon breeze.

Our stay with our five kids in Casa Pombo was amazing. It is gorgeous and the apartments are extremely comfortable and well equipped. Claude was so incredibly helpful! He answered all of our questions and arranged an incredible day out on a private boat. He gave the boat company an itinerary of what islands, beaches and restaurants we should go to and it was all amazing. The staff at Casa Pombo was extremely friendly and professional. We would definitely recommend it to anyone!
