Cartagena is a historical port city on the southeastern tip of the Murcia region in Spain. One of the oldest cities in the world, Cartagena has been populated since the Phoenician conquest approximately 227 BC.
Due to its prime during the Roman Empire, plenty of ancient historical sites were discovered and after many years, these sites have been regenerated with modern touches. One of the most important spots is the archaeological site of the remains of the Punic wall of Cartagena; a defensive wall built to defend the city during the Second Punic War.
Another ancient site to stopover is the infamous Roman Theater that was revealed not too long ago. Discovered by chance in the late 80’s, this theater was buried beneath the city and excavated throughout the years. Only recently the theater has been open to the public for viewing.
Another great sightseeing trip is Bateria de Cenizas located near Portman, On high hilltops either side of the city are pairs of very impressive British built Vickers and Armstrong 38.1 cm guns (in the style of the ‘Guns of Navarone’) which were used to protect the approaches to Cartagena in more recent times
