The old cathedral in Cartagena is the oldest building in the city and was built on the remains of a Roman Theatre around the first century A.D. The artefacts found on the sight in 1987 can be seen in the Museum of the Roman Theatre. Nearly every building in Cartagena harps back to its Roman ancestry, one of the most spectacular of these is the ruins of the amphitheatre and also the Casa Fortuna, belonging to a wealthy family it was built in the first century B.C and shows what day to day life was like at the time of the Roman Empire.
Not all buildings in Cartagena are this old though, for those who enjoy modern buildings, the Calle Mayor has the houses of Cervantes and Llagostera. Built by the architect Victor Beltri, they show off the characteristic glassed in balconies of this modernistic movement.
Although Cartagena is primarily a port, La Manga del Mar, the Mar Menor and the Murcian Mediterranean Coast lie partly within the city and therefore Cartagena can boast to being the Spanish town with the most beaches certified ‘Q’ for quality by the ICTE. The beautiful beach of El Portus is also near Cartagena.
