Cartagena( i )

Cartagena is the capital of the region with a population of 168,000, Cartegena was founded, as its name suggests, by the Carthargenians in 227 BC and it became Hannibal's capital city on the Iberian Peninsula.

Today it is a modern, industrial city although relics of the its past are still highly visible. The narrow streets of the old town were built around the ruined 13th century cathedral. There are several sites of historical interest including the remains of the Roman road, an old Roman theatre and the Literna (an ancient lighthouse of Moorish origins). Cartagena's ancient seaport and naval dockyard is where the first submarine was built in 1900 and where submarines are still built today. The port consists of a deep bay with a natural harbour, hence the town's historical importance.

Cartagena has a large shopping centre, plenty of supermarkets and other amenities you would expect to find in a large town including a hospital, schools and sports facilities. The town is the major service centre for the Costa Calida urbanizations that continue to develop around it. Cartegena is 30 minutes drive from Murcia. San Javier airport is 15km from Cartagena. The excellent golf courses at La Manga, which has 3 18-hole courses of international standard, are 20km away.

San Pedro Del Pinatar( i )

Traditionally a seafaring and agricultural centre, San Pedro del Pinatar has become one of the principal tourist towns & main tourists attractions on Murcia's Costa Cálida. The main attractions of San Pedro are concentrated around the beach and shore. Here you will find Lo Pagán, a lively tourist centre which has all kinds of holiday facilities such as hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. Next to the long promenade facing the Mar Menor are extensive beaches such as La Puntica or Villananitos. This watery setting, combined with the facilities at its marina means you can take part in many sports such as sailing, scuba diving or windsurfing.

Around the Mar Menor, the beaches of Villananitos and La Curva (formerly known as La Puntica), offer shallow waters, an incentive to bathe or practise any kind of water sport. La Puntica is a beach where water sports are possible, such as sailing, windsurfing, canoeing. There are even floating pitches on the water. It has a wide variety of services such as open-air bars, showers and restaurants. The beaches bathed by the Mediterranean are El Mojon and La Llana with 400 and 2,500 meters long respectively. El Mojon is a typical Spanish village near the Mar Menor, (the famous saltwater lagoon) and the San Pedro Nature Reserve (where you observe many species of flora and fauna).
