“The many Roman sites in Cartagena -Capital City of the Romans in Spain, 209 BC- as well as the rich historic background, having hosted settlements from several civilizations like the Phoenitians make it the most visited town in the area. Certainly its Roman Anphi-Theater will make your mind drift off 2000 years back in time!”
