Cartagena is a Spanish Mediterranean city and naval station in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula in the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia. Cartagena has been the capital of the Spanish Navy's Maritime Department of the Mediterranean since the arrival of the Spanish Bourbons in the eighteenth century. As far back as the sixteenth century it was one of the most important naval ports in Spain, together with Ferrol in the North. Click to view map
It is a walled town and has a fine harbour defended by forts. In the time of Philip II of Spain, it was a major naval seaport of Spain. It is still an important naval seaport, the main military haven of Spain, and there is a big naval shipyard. Thanks to its strategic position on the Mediterranean, Cartagena has been inhabited by many different cultures which have left their mark on its rich cultural heritage during a glorious and turbulent history. 

The “Cartagena, Port of Cultures” initiative was created to allow visitors to enjoy a wide range of activities and visits, discovering the cultural wealth and rich history of the city. It’s one of the several projects to energize the tourist possibilities of this potential major cultural destination, frequently overshadowed by the mass-tourism due to the proximity of several holiday resorts, and the refinery and the industrial development which yielded a bad reputation to the city because of pollution, now fortunately eradicated.

Discover Murcia this Summer   by Gen Wright

Murcia is a city that is filled with architectural wonders and really is a treasure chest for those who wish to indulge in old architectural delights. They are beautifully constructed and painstakingly maintained buildings. You will be hard put to choose between them on a short trip, but every place you visit will be worth it.

You can start with The Murcia Cathedral - Murcia is a city of many churches and this can be considered to be the central amongst them. It dates back from the 14th to the 18th century. It is famous for the Puerta del Perdin, the gothic chapel, the Junterones chapel and most visibly - the ninety six meter tower that has twenty five bells!

You can then go to the casino, which is not a functioning casino but a beautifully made building. It was completed towards the end of the 19th century and is a fine piece of period architecture. It has a Moorish entrance hall, a Morrocan ballroom and a breathtaking patio that is located centrally and done up in Pompeian styles.

The nest stop on your tour can be the Murcia fountain. This is not just another big fountain; it is the big fountain that sits at probably the busiest junction in the city. It has beautiful water jets spouting up from all over the place across the huge area that is covered by the fountain. As you sit down in the middle of really busy traffic, it might feel like life has slowed down for you and whilst you can see everyone going about their work, you may be overcome by a pleasant and relaxing sensation.

There are plenty of transport options when it comes to exploring Murcia and its surrounding areas. Local trains and buses are affordable and regular while if arriving at the airport you may wish to avail of a Murcia Airport car hire service. This area of Spain is simply stunning and cruising the region by road at your own pace is really something to experience.

Onwards with the relaxing tour, you can next go to the Town hall square of Murcia. As the name suggests, it is right in front of the town hall in the city of Murcia and it is famous for its beautifully created and maintained gardens. The whole area is always dotted with tourists and other visitors. Since the setting is very picturesque, it is an ideal place to snap some nice pictures of the town hall square and the entire garden.

You can then head back to the cathedral square and cool off after a long day of travel and sightseeing. This square is the place to get a few drinks and take nice long break between the Cathedral and the Palacio Episcopal.
