Ermita, Cartagena, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel

Ermita, Cartagena, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel

Located along the Caribbean coast, the burgeoning city of Cartagena is an internationally recognized hotspot, largely due to its deep cultural roots. The name “Ermita" comes from a marriage between two worlds. On the one hand, the name pays homage to the neighborhood of El Cabrero, where the hermitage built in 1900 by Rafael Núñez is the most emblematic building; on the other hand, it alludes to the very essence of the word: a place of worship and retreat, one that welcomes nomads and shepherds them along their way. Based on an imposing conservation house of almost 100 years old completely restored and in which the stories of the past and those that are to come converge. Ermita, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, welcomes its visitors in an atmosphere that pays homage to its cultural heritage; the restaurant, café bar, gardens and lounges, all gathered in the big house, reaffirm the magic of the place.
