Armed with imagination, ingenuity, and an adoration of the city of Cartagena de Indias, the authors of this book attached a photographic camera to a remote control helicopter and succeeded at portraying this amazing city of yesteryear from remarkable heights. Due in large part to its military fortresses, city walls, and bastions, Cartagena de Indias is one of the most stunning cities in the world.
