Text description provided by the architects. The development of cruise terminal is located in the Port of Cartagena; a place with exceptional conditions because of the sea views and because it is very close to the city.

This platform of 11.024 m2 has a dual condition that allows you to see Cartagena from inside and outside.

The connection between Cruise Terminal, City Centre and the most important services makes this place the door of the city. So, the visitor can find in the same place sights as the  Roman Theatre, the Isaac Peral Submarine, the town hall, the Castle, the main wall, and the panoramic lift among others monuments.

We have planned a public space for cruise passengers and for citizens of Cartagena. This is for their walking, enjoyment, playing, going out… In short, a maximum use of this exceptional space with its strategic position.

*We free up space on the platform (the platform is freed up space??), and the principal uses are concentrated in a singular piece, easy to recognize as a roof which reproduces in its surface a seabed as a ceramic mosaic. Below this ceramic roof we can find several uses:

  • Shadow spaces where you can enjoy the excellent views, with rest areas with benches around the pillars, and a playground.
