EXCURSION TO CARTAGENA
Do you want to enjoy and discover a 3.000 year old city?
Spain has always had Cartagena in high esteem due to it’s strategic importance for military and commercial purposes. It is unbelievable that through all this time Cartagena has been controlled by phoenicians, tartessians, romans, germans, arabs,… It was from where the great general Anibal departed with his army and elephants to Italy during the Second Punic War.
We will start our journey from Murcia at around 10am and in one hour approximately we will be arriving in Cartagena where we will jump into a city tour. It is essential to get to know some of the most emblematic places in Cartagena as the Roman Theater, built during the reign of Augustus, discovered in 1990 and currently restored.
At the evening there will be some time to soak in the atmosphere of the city. The most adventurous can take a walk to the Lighthouse to admire the view of the Mediterranean Sea or go to the Cala Cortina Beach, quite out of the hustle of the city centre. On the other hand if you are a more relaxed person you can visit some museums or discover the gastronomy of the region in one of the many bars and restaurants. The typical dished include the Caldero, the Pisto and the sweet and tasty Paparajotes. Don’t forget to grab some for the way back!
Around 7pm we will have to go back to Murcia in order to arrive after sunset. After this intense day you will probably have a lot of memories to share with friends and family. See you in our next adventure Unitripper!
