Cartagena City Council wants to extend its cultural work and tourist promotion to all over the city area, so this mobile tourist information is created for this purpose.

Cartagena has these characteristics:

– extension = 558 Km2
– maximum distances = 46,5 Km E-O / 21,6 Km N-S
– altitude = 0,00 – sea-level rise / + 546,19 m –“la muela” peak
– population = 06.565 inhabitants
– distribution = 62.477 inhabitants – city (30%) / 144.080 inhabitants- dispersed (70%)
– landscape = sea- port- beaches / countryside – cultivation area / mountain -forest
– climate= sun- wind- rain- snow- sun

This mobile box will quite occasionally move to other cities, as Madrid- Music Festival “La mar de músicas” or to other places as “The Antarctic –Scientific Ship Hespérides” that docks in the port of Cartagena.
