The natural and preserved area of Lighthouse of Cabo de Palos Cartagena Spain is in La Manga del Mar Menor, just 30 kilometres from the town of Cartagena.
According to Pliny the Elder and Rufus Festus Avienus, there was once a temple dedicated to Baal Hammon on the promontory of the cape, which later became associated with the cult of Saturn.
The main attraction in the Lighthouse of Cabo de Palos Cartagena Spain, however, is in the sea itself. Hormiga Islands are 2.5 miles away from the coast. The sea bed has been designated an Integral Marine Reserve for its exceptional beauty and excellent state of conservation. Its lighthouse began operating on January 31, 1865.
