ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM – FREE GUIDED VISIT
Our favourite tour guide Vera has arranged for her friend, the archaeologist Pedro Huertas, to give us a guided visit to the Municipal Archaeological Museum of Cartagena next Wednesday 28 February between 6:00pm and 7:30pm. The tour will be conducted in English and it’s free! (Including access to the museum).
The tour takes you from prehistory through to the 19th century. Located on the site of the late Roman San Antón necropolis, the visit follows a chronological order from the Paleolithic and the Bronze Ages to the Roman period, and then on to architectural items and lower arts from the 19th century. The San Antón necropolis is one of the main points of interest. For those that don’t know, a necropolis is a large, designed cemetery with elaborate tomb monuments. The name stems from the Ancient Greek and literally means “city of the dead”.
I need to confirm numbers to Vera by Monday evening so If you’d like to come along please let me know by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit SV ‘Gleda’ on pontoon A.
The museum is near El Cortes Ingles, so I suggest we meet by the gate at 5:45pm. It’s about 1.5 miles (2.5km)
