This summer Disney Cruise Line is sailing to seven new ports in Europe. These fantastic destinations include Gothenburg and Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden; Toulon (Provence) and Brest, France; Cartagena, Spain; Fredericia, Denmark; and Belfast, Northern Ireland. Today I want to bring you more details about the relatively quiet and unspoiled town of Cartagena, Spain.
Check out these highlights:
Reflecting the architecture that thrived between the 5th and 1st centuries, this spectacular theatre features Roman ruins and a museum of archaeological finds. Amazingly enough, this historical gem was hidden from the world until just 30 years ago!
Castillo de la Concepción
In the heart of the city, board a glass lift and ascend to the top of its highest hill. There, a medieval castle sits, overlooking the port, ruins and city, built on the site of a Roman temple. After years of changes made by conquering civilizations, the Castillo de Conception was turned into a medieval fortress when Spain reconquered Cartagena. It was in use until the end of the Spanish Civil War, when it functioned as a lookout for bombs. Now it is home to a museum chronicling Cartagena’s long maritime history.
Cala Cortina Beach
Located in a lovely cove, Cartagena’s sandy beach offers fun bars and restaurants as well as swimming, snorkeling and kids play areas. It is the perfect place for relaxation after you’ve met your daily step count goal roaming the city.
There’s so much more to be discovered in Cartagena for guests sailing aboard the Disney Magic’s transatlantic voyage on May 12, 2019. Stay tuned for more in-depth looks at Disney Cruise Line’s newest European ports!
