Reenactment 2014.

Last weekend, the city of Murcia was taken by military troops ... of differents wars. The Codex Belix association organized again this event which shows rigorously, historical battles, as well as war camps of several periods. One way to bring the history to the street, and to show that war should never be to resolve a situation between countries or citizens.
In the picture: American troops tank (I think from World War II).
Here are some links to the pictures I took in 2010:

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.

Mistery Lighthouse

Revisiting after two years, this wonderful lighthouse at Cape Palos.
Off the coast of this lighthouse, have been numerous shipwrecks that are the cause for which this lighthouse was built.
And there is no mystery (that I know), but that perspective give me some mistery.

Made In Jabon

A soap bubble show, highly recommended: Made in Jabón (made in soap). If this goes through your town, I recommend watching this show. Ephemeral and very beautiful. A little over an hour, where you can not stop looking. A show very carefully, both in execution and a good script.
Image: A few moments of the show that I saw last Sunday at the Teatro Circo (Circus theatre).
