Admire the most famous parts of the city and its surrounding areas and discover the secrets of an iconic landmark.

Sit back and let the sights come to you during a panoramic drive through the countryside to the old mining mountain range of La Unión. This mountainous zone is both stark and scenic, and offers numerous opportunities to capture stunning photos. On the spectacular coast, gaze up at the towering Cabo de Palos Lighthouse, which Carlos I built to defend the mainland against pirate attacks. 

As you wind through the streets of Cartagena, marvel at Roman and Nouveau architecture while your guide shares facts about the city. The Roman Theatre, which long ago seated 7,000 spectators, is regarded by many as the region’s greatest monument. Enjoy a guided visit of this atmospheric place and admire the lovingly restored relics that have been found here. Prefer not to walk? There’s an option to relax about the theatre instead.
