This zoo has several branches around Spain and has earned a lot of praise for its humane approach.
There are no cramped pens or bars at Terra Natura; instead, it tries to create enclosures as close to the animal’s natural habitat as possible.
To do this they’ve planted 500 trees and shrubs throughout the park.
As for the zoo’s inhabitants, there are more than 300 animals here, from 50 species.
Among them are endangered creatures like the European lynx, brown bear and Iberian wolf that now only exist in small numbers in the wild.
More exotic animals include hippos, lions, giraffes, white rhinos and an assortment of birds and reptiles.
Roman Theatre of Cartagena
No visit to Murcia is complete without exploring Cartagena, a beautiful port city where every twist and turn tells a tale about its rich history. Thanks to its strategic position on the Costa Calida, Cartagena has been inhabited by several cultures such as Arabs and Romans which all have left their own mark on its cultural heritage.
The most important landmark in the city is the old Roman Theatre which dates all the way back to between the 5th and 1st century BC. However, it wasn’t until 1988 when the first remains of the theatre were rediscovered during the demolishing of another old building. Today you can visit not only the Roman Theatre itself but also a large museum which will take you on an exciting journey through time.
The Espacio Mediterráneo shopping centre is on the eastern outskirts of Cartagena, heading out of the city towards La Manga and the Mar Menor, and contains a full selection of shopping opportunities, as well as restaurants, a cinema complex and a bowling alley.
