Amazingly, the Museo Del Teatro wasn’t discovered until 1988.
    Hola!  Welcome to Cartagena, Spain.  Located on Spain’s southeast coast,  Cartagena is a major Spanish naval port.  It has been one of the Mediterranean’s most important defensive harbors since the 16th Century. There are several museums showcasing the city’s rich history. The remains of the Roman Theatre pay tribute to the influence of the former Roman empire.   Surprisingly not discovered until 1988, it has since been restored to some of its former glory.
The Castillo de la Concepción looms above the city, once protecting the port with massive iron cannons. Modern Cartagena is teeming with artwork and culture and is a haven for aspiring young artists and street performers. The décor of the streets in the city centre makes it feel like you are walking through a post modern gallery of Spanish heritage. There are plenty of outstanding open air cafes to enjoy Tapas while taking in the scene of the bustling shopping district. Even over the Winter Holidays, temperatures are in the upper sixties and the sun is almost always shining.
The best way to see Cartagena is on foot and you can cover the major attractions in a weekend or less. They take “Siesta” seriously and the hospitality industry virtually shuts down for a nap after lunch until dinnertime to avoid the sun’s hottest rays. The harbor is always full of recreational boats and the port is quickly becoming popular on cruise ship routes.  Cartagena was a vibrant mix of historical artifacts  and contemporary style as well as a beautiful seaside resort with a Flamenco infused night life. We’re glad we were able to visit this up and coming Mediterranean hotspot and hope we absorbed some Spanish hospitality along the way. Adios,  mi amigos!
