Cape Palos Town

 Cape Palos give its name to a small beautiful town (part of Cartagena) near to La Manga. Beautiful to visit out of summer (less people) but also on summer season. A very recommended place if you like to dive and also for eating any kind of fish plate from fishermen at Cape Palos that they fish on Mediterranean sea. Also I recommend to taste "caldero", the most traditional rice plate on Murcian food.

La Unión

"La Unión, a municipality located in the southeast of the region of Murcia, between the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean coast, shows a unique and singular landscape. Its mountains, with iron, manganese, zinc, sphalerite or pyrite brushstrokes, give a peculiar touch to the landscape, deeply marked by the traces that the mining industry left behind throughout centuries of activity .

The "Museo Arqueológico Romano" (Roman Archaeological Museum), is to be found in the Portmán district, (in reference to Portus Magnum, the former Roman harbour), and more precisely in the " Antiguo Hospital de Caridad" (Charity Hospital). There can be admired the biggest Roman mosaic preserved in the region, wich belongs to the I-III century AD Roman villa called "Huerta del Paturro" (Paturro's Orchard)."

The Past of Cinema

 I miss those moments at cinema earing the noise of cinema projetor while watching a film. When I was teenager I was lucky to meet a cameraman (I don't remember the movie, maybe The jewel of the Nile) and entered on the projector room and saw how it was changing the film roll and watching the film from that room.
