Anyone with an interest in things Military might enjoy the chance to visit the Juan Carlos I, the pride and joy of the Spanish fleet, which will be in Cartagena between the 2nd and the 4th of July.
The Juan Carlos I is known as a strategic projection vessel, and is, to all effects, a multi purpose warship, which also acts as an aircraft carrier, having a "ski-jump" ramp, as opposed to a flat take-off deck such as the Charles de Gaulle last week.
This vessel carriers Harrier "jump jets" and more helicopters, so is a totally different animal altogether.
The vessel will be moored in the cruise ship port in Cartagena between the 2nd and the 5th and is open to the public for visits on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th July ONLY.
Opening hours are 10am and 1pm and 4pm to 8pm on Tuesday 3rd and 10am to 12 midday on Wednesday 4th.
There are unlikely to be the vast queues experienced in the past when other military vessels have been in Cartagena, as the information about the visit of the vessel was only released this morning, and the visits are during weekdays, although schools have broken up now.
