The Candies Portal - Cartagena de Indias
On the Carriages place, we find the famous Candies Portal. This portal, that has a spectacular vu on the Public Clock, hasn’t always been named like this, because at the colonial time, it was named the Portal of the Judge and when they decided to sell the slaves, then this portal received the name Portal of the Slaves. At the end of the XIX century, the mayor decided that this site was the one of the carriages that could park in front of the Portal de los Dulces.
