Cartagena The Essential
Interesting
Cartagena enjoys a remarkable location on a deep bay surrounded by headlands defended by forts. It stands in a relief dominated by the hill where the castle was built; the ancient theatre clings to the same hillside. In the harbour, the marina rubs shoulders with the military arsenal; the two are separated from the town by a high wall. The first submarine invented in 1888 by Isaac Peral, a local resident, can be seen on the quayside.
