Before its current localization behind San Felipe Castle, the monument, piece made by Tito Lombana, was placed near Getsemaní neighborhood from where it was moved because of the construction of Heredia bridge. The monument is homage to the poet from Cartagena Luis Carlos López.

One of the most beloved Colombian sculptures lies behind the San Felipe Castle: a bronze sculpture of “Monument of old shoes“. It is quite common to see tourists climb in and take pictures of themselves inside the shoes. The artist Hector Lombana sculpted the shoes as a tribute to Luis Carlos López, the Cartagenero poet who became famous for the sonnet “To the old shoes”.
