What to see Carthaginians and Romans took a special interest in this maritime area, whose name today comes from the original Latin, Cartago Nova. You can start your visit on the shores of the Mediterranean by taking a look at the prototype of the submarine by the inventor Isaac Peral, and also with a visit to the fascinating National Museum of Underwater Archaeology (ARQUA). In the centre of town you'll find the modernist Town Hall and the old cathedral. Did you know that this is the oldest church in Cartagena and that it's built on the remains of the stands of a Roman theatre? You can see the items found in this archaeological site in the Roman Theatre Museum. In addition to its Roman heritage, Cartagena's other attractions include the La Concepción castle (the site of the History and Mediaeval Cartagena Visitor Centre). And an excellent way to see the modernist architecture in the town is to take a walk along Calle Mayor street and its surroundings. Would you like to find out more about the history of Cartagena? Then head for Monte Aletes, where you'll find the Punic Wall Visitor Centre and the Naval Museum. Gastronomy In Cartagena, the star dishes are products preserved in brine, fish, rice dishes and paellas. Delicious. Festivities A good time of year to travel to Cartagena is during the second fortnight in September, the date of the famous festival of the Carthaginians and Romans.
