CARTAGENA TRIP

– 3 days 2 nights –

– 16th to 18th April 2019 –

Led by Anne Cattle

This is a repeat of the trips the Travel Group organised in 2013, 2015 and 2017 to see the amazing Semana Santa Parades.  They take place every night over the Easter week and are spectacular.

The price, including half board, is €135 per head, with a €20 supplement for a single room.  This trip has always proved popular and early booking is recommended.  We will be taking €60 per head deposit at the next General Meeting.

 

Mar Menor Beach

 

The hotel is a 4 star spa hotel at Mar Menor and is situated just a couple of minutes’ walk to the beach. The trip includes breakfasts and dinners at the hotel and one free round of the spa facilities. Rooms are either double or twin bedded with terrace and bath.

 

 

 

This is a 3 day/2 night visit. The Hotel we will be staying in is 20 minutes outside of Cartagena, but we will be using the coach to bus us into the city.

 

Roman Amphitheatre, Cartagena

 

 

 

Cartagena is a truly beautiful city with an incredible Roman heritage and many places of interest to visit.

 

 

 

Float entirely made of Flowers

 

 

The highlight of this trip will be the flower displays on the huge floats which are incredible. The floats are carried by men marching below the floats.

 

 

The Santa Semana Parade

 

Those taking part in the Parades represent different churches of the city.  Some wear headgear similar to the Ku Klux Klan dating back to the Spanish Inquisition. It is both spectacular and intimidating.
