Itinerary

Panoramic tour – 45 minutes Visit Punic wall Museum – inside visit – 30 minutes Driving to Castle hill. Views – 10 minutes Views of the City, Explanation – 15 minutes Drive to the Centre – 5 minutes Visit the 1st Submarine in the world – inside visit – 25 minutes Guided walking tour – 20 minutes Entrance to town hall – inside visit – 10 minutes Entrance to Roman Theatre – 60 minutes Guided walk of Old Town – 20 minutes Return to ship

The Spanish city of Cartagena is steeped in history and this tour is the perfect way to explore ancient ruins and religious architecture as well as the modern buildings that now line the streets.

Your first stop will be the Punic Wall. The wall dates from the 3rd Century BC and is the first defensive wall of its kind found in Cartagena; one of the oldest defensive walls in the whole of Europe. The wall was the site of the Punic War, is built from sandstone from local quarries and has a height of 3 metres.

Next, you will visit the port area and its surrounding architecture. In 1728, Cartagena became the capital of the Spanish Navy’s Maritime Department and the city was heavily fortified with the construction of a modern castle and a huge arsenal. The port has several areas of maritime interest as well as modern architecture and monuments. You will visit the naval museum and get to see the Peral, the first electric battery-powered submarine, built by the Spanish engineer and sailor Isaac Peral for the Spanish Navy.

The Roman theatre is your next destination. The theatre was built between 5-1 BC by the grandsons of Augustus Caesar. The theatre is one of only a handful of Roman theatres remaining and is in fantastic condition.

To complete your excursion, your professional tour guide will take you on a wonderful walking tour of the pedestrian streets of the historic centre where they will talk to you about the ways in which architecture in Cartagena has changed to allow the city to grow and become the beautiful city we see today.
