Administrative Area Level 4
“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!”

Restaurant
“No comparto la idea de que la carne es beneficiosa ni mucho menos necesaria para el organismo humano. Y como incluso en estos tiempos la cocina vegetariana es una gran desconocida os invito a este restaurante, para que comprobéis con vuestro propio paladar que la comida sin carne no solo es mucho más sana sino que puede ser mucho más sabrosa. (Las croquetas de trufa están buenísimas).”

“Uno de los mejores sitios de Cartagena, sale a unos 50 o 60€ por persona, os aconsejo que si váis pidáis de carta, el menú creo que no merece la pena. A 7 minutos andando del apartamento. ”
