Lose yourself in the beautiful scenery and rich history of Cartagena and its surrounding countryside, from the comfort of your motorcoach.

Sit back and soak up the picturesque scenery as you ride south through the exquisite Murcian countryside, to the Cabo de Palos lighthouse. Rising some 170 feet above the ground and towering over 265 feet above sea level, its nautical range of 23 miles safely guides more than 50,000 ships every year.

Then journey back into the captivating countryside to the once thriving mining town of La Unión, where the fascinating landscape is covered in vibrant red and orange tones, and vibrant pools of mineral-rich water. These tell-tale signs of valuable minerals were noticed by the Romans who were the first to mine the area’s rich deposits of zinc, iron and lead.

Back in Cartagena you can delve into 3,000 years of history, as you ride through the city’s Phonecian, Roman, Byzantine and Moorish remains, and past the charming architecture lining the fabulous Town Hall Square and Calle Mayor. At the spectacular Roman Theatre Museum, you can join a guided walk around the museum, or opt to watch a DVD presentation.
