Head south through the Murcian countryside to the once-thriving mining town of La Unión. The landscape, which is threaded with zinc, iron, lead and pyrite, was first mined by the Romans but has since seen centuries of mineral extraction, evident in the scarred landscape and abandoned buildings that offer stunning photo opportunities. Nearby Cartagena was founded in the 3rd century by the Carthaginians and has been a prized location through history with its natural harbours and rich mines. Explore the ancient ruins, including the incredible Roman Theatre Museum, which showcases a 2,000-year-old theatre only discovered in the 1980's beneath the ruins of the Old Cathedral.
