About the Tour

Writing these texts in my own handwriting will not be the same as you traveling friend who will enjoy the hand of historians, bilingual guides, writers who have dedicated their lives to guiding and explaining such an entertaining and interesting journey that houses the memories of this Colombian literary nobel Gabriel García Márquez.

The years of his early childhood in Aracataca would decisively mark his work as a writer; the fabulous wealth of oral traditions transmitted by his grandparents nourished much of his work. This tour is a manifesto of the life and work of the Nobel Prize in Literature.

(Aracataca, Colombia, 1927 - Mexico DF, 2014) Colombian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982 and one of the great masters of universal literature. Gabriel García Márquez was the fundamental figure of the so-called Boom of Latin American literature. This 2h30 tour is very little for a person as illustrious as GABO, as friends called him in gatherings in cafes in the capital of Bogotá or during his long stays in Cartagena la Heroica, his second home.

At the age of twenty-eight he published his first novel, La Hojarasca (1955), in which he already pointed out some of the most characteristic features of his work of fiction. In this first book and some of the novels and stories that followed, the village of Macondo and some characters that would make up One Hundred Years of Solitude began to be glimpsed. In the experiences narrated in his works, García Márquez added to all of this his portentous insufferable fantastic, evident in the work that represents the culmination of magical realism: One Hundred Years of Soledad (1967).


On this tour you will get to know the traditional neighborhood of San Diego , from where its squares, hotels and streets have hosted illustrious characters that can be remembered in the history of the colloquial Cartagena.
