Holidays In Cartagena

Visiting Spain

Spain is absolutely outstanding; it is that type of country that attracts millions and millions of visitors every year without any efforts, as its spectacular beauty is the best advantage a country can have. Visiting Spain is described by the ones who have already done it as a lifetime and life changing experience, as something that will offer you wonderful locations costa brava and the possibilities to try the fragrances and the perfumes of a very special nation! You have to try a holiday in Spain! I assure you that you will never regret your choice.

The beautiful Cartagena

Cartagena is one of the most popular destinations in Spain, Murciaís second largest city and one of the most important and active ports in the country. The history of the city is a very old, interesting and rich one; founded by the Carthaginians no sooner than the 3rd century BC, as even the name indicates it, Cartagena was conquered by the Romans during the famous Punic War. The Romans helped the city reach its peak, transforming it into a very flourishing one because of two reasons: the nearby silver mine that started to be exploited and the Garum fish sauce that was much appreciated in the entire Roman Empire. Unfortunately, the Vandals destroyed Cartagena in the 5th century, but tourists can still visit some remarkable ruins, such as the Roman Theatre, dating back to the 1st century BC.

Places to visit

There are many more places to visit in Cartagena besides the Roman Theatre. A fine example is the Nuestra Senora Asuncion Cathedral, built in the 13th century; today, only its ruins survive, as the Cathedral was almost entirely destroyed during the Civil War. Castillo Conception is the beautiful fortress youíll find right above the port, built in the 13th century in such a way as to incorporate the ruins of the outstanding Roman Amphitheatre. The Santo Domingo Church and the Iglesia Del Carmen, displaying original Neoclassical and Baroque architectural styles are also worth visiting.

The 19th century Iglesia de Caridad deserves your attention thanks to the spectacular Baroque paintings hosted behind its walls. Last but not least, visit the City Hall, the Aguirre Palace and the Casino, which are fine examples of modernist architecture. As you can see, Cartagena is a place full of history and with numerous monuments that deserve your attention, so consider it as destination for one of your future holidays!

All About the Canary Islands

A happy group of islands

The Canary Islands represent one of the most popular and famous tourist destinations in Spain, attracting millions of visitors every year. Their climate is a spectacular one; the landscapes seem like being taken from another world, while the inhabitants are welcoming and always in a good mood. These are definitely the ingredients for a perfect holiday in location villa piscine espagne, especially if you add to them the ample beaches covered with fine sands and the shallow waters of an unbelievable blue. Tourists describe the islands as being a paradisiacal group, so why not consider them as destination for a future holiday? It can be the memorable holiday you always dreamt of.

The islands and their attractions

The wonderful climate the islands enjoy, with mild temperatures all year long and hundreds of days of sunshine made them a preferred destination for tourist from all the corners of the world. You can choose either one of the large islands (Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, La Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife, and El Hierro) or one of the small islands (Lobos, Alegranza, Roque del Oeste). Either way, the beaches that patiently wait for tourists to get a nice tan have all fine sands; what is very interesting about the islands is that each and every single one of them has a very strong individual personality, as the landscape is radically different to all the other ones. It is in fact one of the main attraction factors and one of the main advantages of the islands.

The climate as an attraction

Visitors say that the Islands enjoy an eternal spring. They are located very close to the hot African coast and just 4 degrees from the Cancer tropic, so their climate is mostly subtropical. However, if you decide to visit Tenerife, Gran Canaria or La Palma, be prepared for tropical rainfalls! If you choose instead Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, there are no risks, as their climate is very dry.

Enjoying the cuisine

In the Canaries, you have the chance to taste the unusual combinations of Spanish cuisine, Latin-American and African influences. One of the most famous recipes is the Papas Arrugadas; these are potatoes that inhabitants boil in salted water. They are served with the hot Mojo picon, a sauce containing parika, chili peppers, garlic and oil. I assure you that the islands are the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday, so take them into consideration for the future! They really deserve your attention!

A Spectacular Girona

The Spanish experience

It is said that you have to live at least once in your lifetime the outstanding Spanish experience; well, whoever says it has probably fallen in love with the country. In fact, it is almost impossible not to fall in love with it after you visit it once, as its beauties seem like being taken from another galaxy. It is unreal the feeling you get when you see all those Alcazabas (the Moorish mosques), the Arab palaces, the modernist architecture, the Roman remains and the breathtaking landscapes. You will adore it!

Choosing the Spanish destination

Spain has hundreds and hundreds of places to visit location vacances espagne and each with its individual identity, with its unique attractions and its own welcoming people. If you are in trouble with choosing the right destination for you, I can help you by recommending Girona. Girona is the capital city of the beautiful Costa Brava and a popular destination thanks to its location: just 100 kilometers away from the famous Barcelona and around 60 kilometers away from France.

Girona is a city that will attract you with its past, especially if you are a history lover, as its heritage is a very rich one. The historic center of the city is extremely well preserved and its old walls, built by the Romans (who also founded the city) are well conserved, so worth visiting. If you love sightseeing, donít miss the Santa Maria Cathedral; its construction started in the 11th century and ended only in the 18th century, which led to the interesting combination of architectural elements: Romanesque, Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic, these are the periods displayed by the walls of the Cathedral.

The Justice Palace, also known as Casa Pastors and the Pia Almoina, a building built in the 14th century in a Gothic style are two other monuments that you are not allowed to miss. The former Jewish Quarter, with its narrow, medieval alleys patiently waits to be discovered and explored, so allocate a couple of hours from your free time to it! The Moorish Bathes represent another important attraction for tourists; built in 1194, the bathes were used by the inhabitants of Girona until the 15th century. If you visit Girona with your lover, one of the four bridges that link the two parts of the city represent perfect locations for romantic walks, so offer them some of your attention! Enjoy Girona!
