Roman Theatre of Cartagena
The Roman Theatre of Cartagena is an attraction that I have sort of seen. I was visiting Concepcion Castle and whilst in the park grounds looking over the City, I was immediately overlooking the excavation site of the Roman Theatre. I found out later that it was actually closed to visitors at that particular time.
The Cartagena region is steeped in history and there was a theatre that had been built in Roman times. Over the years this had been built over and some years ago when excavations were taking place, the Roman Theatre was discovered.
It is now one of Cartagena’s most important historic sites.
It is now open to visitors between 1000 and 1330 and 1600 to 1800 Monday to Saturdays and 1030 to 1330 Sundays. [more]
Cartagena was a very important city during the Roman Empire, so they obviously have many ruins from those times. Maybe them most important ruin is the huge theatre. It was built during Roman times, but has been destroyed on several occasions. The people of Cartagena have discovered the ruins a few decades ago and since then, they started to reconstruct it. My friends and I went to visit it and I really recommend it. I have seen many roman ruins and the theatre of Cartagena is among the nicest I have ever visited. It may also be because of the recent restoration. You can visit it only from 10:30 to 13:30 and from 17:00 to 19:00. [more]
