Blogs in this series

Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Romans and Carthiginians

Cartagena, a seaport on the Murcian coast has recently rediscovered its Roman past. Over the last few years the tourist people have invented, and promoted, a new festival which features the Romans and their adversaries the Carthiginians - Hanibal was from Carthage.

We went down to have a look at the battle for Sagunto but we missed it. By the time we got there the Romans (or the Carthiginians) had put on their sunspecs and were getting the tourist train home!
