I was the only visitor, but the reception staff were really helpful and I was shown a 10 minute video explaining the background to the Wall. After that you can see a part of the Wall and it all makes sense. They also had a...More

This museum will take you about an hour to go through--maybe not even that long. It is a small place, preserving sections of the Punic wall and containing some eerie looking tombs. There was a gladiator exhibit there that kids might find interesting. If you...More

Truth to tell, there is not much more here than a section of the Punic Wall to see, but it is presented very well, with lots of information, in both Spanish and English. Fascinating.

A small museum which will take about an hour and costs €3.50. The initial video presentation was interesting, also seeing the remains of the original city wall and crypt built by the Carthaginians. However the museum has few other references to that period in history...More

This is an interesting addition to the day's tour of ruins, presenting a different viewpoint from the forum or theatre. Nice temporary exhbition about gladiators, including facts of which we were unaware. Loved the recreation of the 'tomb' area.

Starting in 227 BC, the Punic Wall once encircled Cartagena to keep out the Romans. Unbelievable that through wars, earthquakes and human habitation, that any part of the wall still exists. At the site, there is a small museum, gift shop, and rest rooms above....More

It's a small museum and the entry cost is €3.50 which I thought was a little steep, but it is worth a visit. There is something awesome about seeing such a well-preserved structure which is literally 2000 years old. I also found the crypt pretty...More

It’s directly opposite the Hotel Los Habaneros - a short walk from the rail or bus station. It has a very distinctive facade (meant to suggest the shape and line of the Wall).
