Join our wheelchair accessible Cartagena and Murcia Shore excursion and enjoy the highlights of these two beautiful cities.
Cartagena excursion will start visiting the famous Punic Wall, one of the first defensive walls of the city. Moreover, it is one of the few remains of the Carthaginian civilization in Spain. Later, we will visit one of the most important legacies of the Roman period, the great Roman Theater and its Museum. The theater was built between 5 and 1 BC and had a capacity of some 6,000 spectators. The tour continues with a stroll through the city’s port. The great wall of Charles III surrounds the port. Besides, here the local Isaac Peral made the prototype of a submarine. The submarine is now located in an interesting museum to which you will have entry. For lunch we will enjoy the local gastronomy at a suggested local restaurant without barriers.
Afterwards, we will visit the charming city of Murcia and, as the first stop, we will discover -from outside- a local lemon orchard. We will enjoy savoring the scent of these fragrant citrus trees and admiring the picturesque setting. Later, we will visit the Cathedral of Murcia, where we will enter through “Puerta de los Apóstoles”. This Cathedral is considered to be in the location of the first church founded by the Apostle Saint James, who landed in Cartagena in the early part of the 1st century AD on a mission to spread the word of Christianity throughout Spain.
As the last of our wheelchair accessible Cartagena and Murcia Shore excursion, we will visit the Real Casino of Murcia, one of the most emblematic buildings in the city. Inside there is a private club open to today’s society, which is an asset of cultural interest. Finally, you will be picked up to be back at the ship on time to the port of Cartagena.
