About Cartagena, Spain

A major seaport and naval base, it has a fine natural harbor, protected by forts. It was founded in 225 B.C. and soon became a flourishing port: the chief Carthaginian base in Spain. The medieval Castillo de la Concepcion, whose ruins are surrounded by fine gardens, commands a splendid view of the city and harbor. No traces of the ancient city remain.

We had a great time in Cartegena. The cruise ship dicks right in town so it’s an easy walk to the action. The amphitheater was fantastic and the shopping was very good. We would love to visit again.


We hired a private taxi with our friends and had an enjoyable ride through Cartagena and some shopping afterwards.
