Carthagena is a small town in the south east of Spain about 40 mins drive from La Manga. Its a town with a rich archeological history and a nice place to spend a few hours wandeing through its narrow moorish style streets. There is a roman amphitheatre which you can view but unfortunately when I was there was surrounded by construction fencing as excavation work was on-going at the site.

Address: South East of Spain
Directions: Carthgena is well sign posted from Alicante or Murcia

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
