It is a place of remarkable botanical and historical value since the remains of an ancient Roman road were found.
The area was an important strategic point in the defense of Cartagena, where the military installations and two Vickers 1923 guns are conserved. The two guns has a 18 meter long tube and more than 88 tons in weight, and a range of 35 kilometres.

AGRUPA VICENTA MINE
It is located 10 minutes from the hotel. The Mountain of the Union contains important mineral deposits constituting an intense mining activity from times of Carthaginians and Romans.
The industrial heritage is enormous: castles, ovens, tunnel, mining train, engine houses...
The main attraction of the entire mining complex is the Agrupa Vicenta Mine, as it is the only underground mine in the Region of Murcia, turned into a museum and conditioned for public visits.
With its more than 4000 square meters open to the public, 80 meters deep, it is one of the most spectacular visiting mines in Europe, highlighting its large interior spaces and its interior reddish lake. An incredible visit.

ROMAN THEATER OF CARTAGENA
Theater built between 5 and 1 BC. , under the mandate of Emperor Augustus, in the city of Carthago Nova with capacity for 7000 spectators.
The discovery (1988) and excavation has been one of the most surprising discoveries of the archeology of the city. A historical gem located in one of the highest hills in the city of great magnitude that makes us think about how it could be completely buried for so long.
