Dress Code for tour to monastery, church & chapel


Recommended Posts

We will be taking the tour of Cartagena with Dora near the end of September. The itinerary lists a visit to the hill at La Popa including the monastery and chapel and also to San Pedro Claver Church. We've been told that it will be quite hot and humid and we should dress comfortably. Just wondering whether there's any type of "dress code" for visiting the chapel and church. Do we need to have our knees and shoulders covered for that portion of the tour? If anyone has been on this tour and could share some tips we'd much appreciate it. Thanks!

We did this tour in February 2018. There was no specific dress code but I chose a casual dress for comfort as it really is hot and humid. My shoulders and knees were bare. My husband wore a casual collared shirt and shorts as well. We really enjoyed this tour as we had a very informative guide. If you have very comfortable sandals then they would be much cooler than running shoes. We loved the panoramic view from La Popa. San Pedro Claver Is beautiful . If the Emerald Museum is included in your tour and you are interested in purchasing one, do your research before you go. The end of the tour leads to a jewellery store below with some very persistent staff.
