A Good Present For Xmas

Image: blood donation centre (Centro Regional de Hemodonación). Any time of year is good to donate blood (in Spain is made altruistically). So if you have not done a blood donation in the last three or four months, this is a good time to do: and is a very good Christmas gift for those who will need it.

Volcano

On the way to Cartagena from Murcia, is the Puerto de la Cadena. An area of natural passage in medieval times was fitted to bring up travelers through these mountains, but by paying a toll.
In the image at the top of the mountain, you can see the castle Macher, or their remains. A castle of the thirteenth century, who built Ibn Mardanish "Wolf King" as fortress on this passage. It was built on Roman remains, so that its base is square. But the castle was not completed due to lack of funds.
You can climb through a trail. A good place for hiking.

Islas Hormigas

Between Islas Hormigas (Ants Islands) and Cabo de Palos (Cape Palos), is the marine reserve that bears their name. An ideal place for scuba diving. In this space, underwater, different mountains that have been the cause of many shipwrecks. One of the wrecks caused most casualties was the ship SS Sirio, in 1906, carrying passengers from Italy to the United States of America. The Cabo de Palos lighthouse was built in 1864, so it is not understood why the ship went between Islas Hormigas and Cabo de Palos. It is believed that picking up passengers illegally from the coast.
