THE ROMAN THEATRE
The Jury applauds the restoration of the Roman Theatre of Cartagena (Cartago Nova) and its well-executed integration into the existing urban layout. The recent exhibition has further enriched the cultural and educational value of the outstanding new museum which incorporates elements such as the crypt of the Santa Maria Coviesa church and the Pascual de Riquelme Palace. The project has been invaluable in securing the timely regeneration of this area in Cartegena.
