Carthageneans, romans, byzantinians, moors, christians… Find out why Cartagena was a crossroads of cultures and one of the most important cities in the ancient world by visiting the exciting new centres and museums that will give you and entertaining insight through its nearly 3.000 thousand years of history.

Rome being the prevailing empire from the 3rd century BC on in this area, find here varied vestiges of the roman colonization, such as the roman baths, the ´via Augusta´ (the main Roman thoroughfare on the Peninsula), and of course the magnificent remains of the Roman theatre, discovered by sheer chance just 30 years ago and constantly in restoration processes.

A panoramic lift will take us up to the highest of the five hills which Cartagena was built on, facing of the sea, the place chosen by the Christians to raise their main castle over the remains of the Moorish Alcazar. From here you’ll enjoy superb views of the whole city, including its harbour, considered among the main ones in the Mediterranean, due to the protection of the mountains surrounding it.

This was the main reason for the bourbon king Carlos III chose this city to become one of the three navy bases in Spain during the 18th century, along with El Ferrol & Cadiz, thus being a wonderful chance to know the vast military heritage from that period that is currently being restored at this moment.

Finally, we’ll walk through the old quarters to behold the several modernist town houses built in the last period of splendour in the city, between the second half of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th, all of them with interesting stories to share.

Of course, free time is included to enjoy one of the coffee shops with tables scattered outside or to have a look at the fashion shops in the main street in town, calle Mayor.
