The interesting history of this Costa.

The ancient Phoenicians from 1.000 years B.C., then later on the Greek, Romans, Carthaginians, Arab and Moorish influences have left a rich tapestry and exciting mix of cultures both architectural and gastronomic.

Alicante, Elche, Orihuela and Cartagena all have a fascinating history and a wide range of architectural sites and historical buildings just waiting for you to explore and enjoy.

The harbour of Cartagena and its whale tail sculpture next to a statue, which decorative ornaments tell about the peoples who have passed by here during more than 3.000 years of history.
