Cartagena

A major seaport in the Mediterranean sea, Cartagena is a walled town in the autonomous community of Murcia, Spain. Its unique location on the Mediterranean Coast made it an ideal location for a fine harbour and naval base.

Cartagena is a town so rich in history and has a very impressive architecture. It was once Spain's major naval seaport in the time of King Philip II and still remains one of the most important ports in Spain.

It was the Carthaginians who founded the city. Headed by General Hasdrubal (Carthago Nova), Cartagena was placed on the map of Spain in 230 BC. It became one of the wealthiest cities in the world when Scipio took it in 209 BC. Legend says that it was also in Cartagena that Hannibal got silver from the mines.

Explore the beautiful city of Cartagena and here you will find a number of spectacular views, government buildings, and castles. The old buildings have been recently restored to preserve their beauty. Special tourist destinations are the Roman Ampitheatre, Peral Submarine, and the naval base in Cartagena.

Cartagena's naval base is home to the Midshipman School, Artillery Headquarters, naval museum. Dockyard Gate, and Naval Headquarters. This important port is large enough that it almost covers the whole city of Cartagena. Numerous archaeological sites can also be found in Cartagena.

Squares and parks abound in Cartagena where locals and tourists can simply relax. Bars and restaurants serve excellent dishes and specialise in seafood cuisine. Exciting watersports activities can be enjoyed from diving to windsurfing to sailing as well as good cycling, hiking, and horse riding.
