A PARADISE FOR TREASURE HUNTERS
Are you a treasure hunter? The National Museum of Underwater Archaeology (ARQUA) in Cartagena houses one of the most valuable treasures ever found: the treasure of the Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes frigate.
The shipload. The exhibition 'Ocean Navigation' includes, among other treasures, 6,000 gold and silver coins from the end of the 18thC and the beginning of the 19thC, and some other really valuable objects such as two gold tobacco cases, fragments of arms and navigation tools. They all have reappeared after being hidden in the ocean depths for two centuries, since the Spanish ship sank after fighting against the British fleet during the Battle of Cape St. Mary in 1804.

Mare Nostrum. ARQUA hides many a secret related to maritime traffic in the Mediterranean during Phoenician, Punic, Greek and Roman times. Inside the museum you will enjoy some amphora series, as well as sunken vessels and even a collection of elephant tusks from the Phoenician times.

A panoramic view of 3,000 years' history. Once you are in ARQUA, you should definitely enjoy its restaurant's extraordinary cuisine and excellent views of a port of cultures with more than 3,000 years of history.

AND ALSO...
Discover Roman Cartagena and treasures such as the Augusteum, the Decumanus, the Roman Theatre and the Roman Forum District... Military Cartagena too, by visiting the art nouveau buildings, the famous Isaac Peral submarine, the Civil War Refuges, and military buildings such as the Navidad Fort and the Castillitos defense battery.
In order to regain strength, you shouldn't miss a caldero rice dish at one of the terraces at the port, followed by an asiático. This kind of coffee is prepared just here, with condensed milk, brandy, a drop of Licor 43, cinnamon, lemon peel and some coffee beans.
