Culture lovers seeking to immerse themselves in history this spring can take advantage of some fantastic breaks to the Spanish Region of Murcia – with a seven-night holiday for two people with flights available from just £660.

The ancient region in south-east Spain boasts a rich heritage with the cities of Cartagena and Murcia providing culture galore, and a wide mixture of Roman, Phoenician and Moorish history to enjoy alongside all the trappings of these two modern cities.

Cartagena's ancient Roman theatre makes an impressive sight alongside the numerous other archaeological delights in the historic port. For those holidaymakers who enjoy a walk and sweeping panoramic views, the city also boasts the impressive 11th century Castillo de la Concepción, which sits 70m above sea level. 

Cartagena is located in the Costa Calida , which also contains the Mar Menor – Europe's largest saltwater lagoon with miles of beaches on offer.

The Cartagonova Hotel in Cartagena offers the ideal base to explore the region with the four-star venue situated close to the city's Roman theatre and within a short walk of the impressive Santa Maria de Gracia Church.

Prices are based on two people staying seven nights on a room-only basis in a twin or double room from April 25 to May 2 and May 2-9. Free WiFi and satellite television are also included, with flights provided by from London Gatwick to Murcia.*
