Get to know Cartagena with your rental car

Welcome to Cartagena, a wonderful city with more than 2,500 years of history and an enviable climate. In its squares and streets you can find vestiges of its past and you can also contemplate natural wonders such as the Mar Menor wetlands.

Today, Cartagena has more than 216,000 inhabitants and lives thanks to oil, ship repair and the export of food products (oil, vegetables and fruits).

Alquilar coche en cartagena

Founded under the name of Qart Hadasht in 227 BC by Asdrubal the Elder, the city reached its peak of splendor with the arrival of the Romans. At this time, Carthago Nova built magnificent buildings that are still standing, such as the Theater, the Forum or the House of Fortune. Passing into the hands of the Byzantines, Carthago Spartaria became the capital until it was destroyed by the Visigoths.

If you plan to visit Cartagena and its surroundings, we recommend you to move around by car. The Sierra de Muela, the regional park of Calblanque, the Monte de las Cenizas and Peña del Aguila with its impressive cliffs... There is plenty to choose from!

With an average annual temperature of 20°C, it is possible to visit Cartagena at any time of the year. Of course, we recommend that you get excited about Easter and attend the festivities of Carthaginians and Romans.

Tolls to take into account

When you get into your rental car in Cartagena you must take into account that the AP-7 or Mediterranean Highway runs through the Spanish geography from Algeciras to the French border. At the height of the Murcian coast, it passes through cities like San Javier or Cartagena.

Parking your rental car in Cartagena

As usual in many cities it is quite difficult to park in the center of Cartagena. The few parking spaces, the traffic and the regulated spaces make it difficult to find a free space. Take note of the different places differentiated by the Regulatory Ordinance of Parking in Cartagena:

  • Blue Zone: All vehicles may park for a maximum of two and a half hours upon payment of the fixed fee.
  • Green Zone: Can be used by all types of vehicles and allows prolonged parking (morning, afternoon or all day).
  • Orange zone: Special for residents.

If you want to park on the street but free of charge, we recommend that you leave your car outside the city center. The Barrio de la Concepción or the area of the Cartagonova Football Stadium can be two good options.

For a fee, and as a better option, you can park your vehicle in one of the public or private parking lots in Cartagena.
