Cartagena is one of the most historic cities in Spain. It was founded in 227 BC by the Carthaginian Hasdrubal as Qart hadasht and later renowned as Cartagena. It is a strategic city because of its great mining wealth and its privileged location between the Mediterranean Sea and an interior lagoon, which allowed an easy defence.
