I love the architecture in Cartagena, it's great that the community has kept the beautiful buildings, such as this one, instead of knocking them down to replace them with ugly high rises. more »
At the side of the town hall is the tourist information centre, they are most helpful. But if you go in the front door, there are tours offered for €1 per person to see the offices of the mayor. We di... more »
Cartagena is perhaps one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. We were enchanted with our short experience. The NH Hotel offered an amazing view from a wrap around terrace so we were able to see first hand the beauty of our surroundings! While we were unable to tour the building the Ayuntamiento or Town Hall is an exquisite building, perhaps next time!
Beautiful old building with the tourist info in the hall. Many minutes to cue to get a map, the service was really slow and not so friendly. Had time to make some pictures of the interior and ceiling.
Cartagena Cartagena is old. It already had an illustrious past when the Roman general, Scipio, renamed it Carthago Nova - New Carthage - in 209 BC. The city is an important port and naval base but its glory days were in the past - a bit like Portsmouth and Chatham really! So when I visited Cartagena recently, I was expecting to see decrepit, run-down areas with old dreary houses. I was pleasantly surprised! What I encountered was a bright airy city with pedestrianised boulevards and decorative buildings. One road in particular - Calle Major - is particularly attractive with shops, eating places and 19th-century mansions with colourful façades such as Cervantes House and Llagostera House both in Modernist style. The Grand Hotel is another building in this road that has modernist influences and a spectacular dome caps its circular façade. There are attractive and historical buildings throughout the city as well as museums - many of a naval and military nature. There are also a number of archaeological sites including Carthaginian and Roman ruins. At one end of Calle Major is another extremely photogenic area - the Plaza de Ayuntamiento where the City Hall building is located. Nearby are attractive gardens that lead to the Paseo de Alfonso XII, which overlooks the marina. It is a pleasant place to sit with a glass of beer. The Peral Submarine is located on this promenade. According to local tourist information Isaac Peral, invented the submarine in 1889. Whilst Senor Peral undoubtedly designed the fine specimen of a U-boat that is on display, the locals are wrong to allege that he invented the submarine - a Dutchman, Cornelis Drebbel, built the first one in 1620! Submarines were also used during the American Civil War (1861-65).
Lousy phone service. I Want to believe that it is because they are lacking personnel in the switchboard. I Have been two weeks calling daily and I have only answered twice to end up with another department (staff) that ends up hanging the phone with which, a doubt that can be solved in two minutes will have to introduce me in person doing Wasting more time on the worker. Inefficiency.
A very beautiful city and worth coming to see for all the wealth and historical culture it has. The architecture of the city has great beauty and are very well maintained and preserved, as well as the maintenance of parks and tourist areas.
