Iglesia de Santo Toribio de Mangrovejo information
This is one of the smaller of Cartegena's churches. Erected between 1666 and 1732, its ceiling is covered with Mudejar paneling. During Vernon's attack on the city in 1741, a cannonball went through a window into the church when it was filled with worshipers, but fortunately there were no casualties. The cannonball is now on display in a glassed niche in the left wall. The church was undergoing a full renovation in 2014, and should soon be looking superb again.
