Cartagena is a city located in Murcia, south-east of Spain. It’s been there for more than two thousand years and that’s all I’m going to write to describe it. There’s a lot of other fun trivia you can read here if you have a minute.
To me, it’s a beautiful place to visit every single time we go on holidays to La Manga. You can have a peacefull walk in its streets, full of an amazing architecture and historic sites, such as The Roman Theatre of Carthago Nova or the art-nuveau building The Gran Hotel. Once you arrive to the coast you find the port, full of little ships I’d love to sail for a day in those clear waters.
One of the our favorite places to eat is D’Almansa. The restaurant was placed in La Manga, but in 2015 they moved to Cartagena so we kept going there for the amazing food they serve. If you have a chance, try the caramelized eggplant and you’ll be coming there over and over.
