The Convergencia Cívica de Cartagena association is a non-profit group that was created with the sole purpose of defending, independently and apolitical, the interests of Cartagena and its region.From this citizen platform we want to promote the "Castillos de Cartagena Illuminados" campaign, and for this reason we would like to make you participate in this initiative, so that it in turn serves as a boost thanks to the media impact of your media.OBJECT:All the Spanish cities that can boast of a remarkable historical past use the lighting means at their disposal to highlight their monuments, fortresses, castles and emblematic buildings.While cities like Barcelona, ??Alicante, Palma de Mallorca, Granada ...
etc have one or two castles at most as a claim to the visitor, who already identifies the monument in the distance thanks to its lighting, in Cartagena we can boast not one, not two but FIVE military castles that no one distinguishes at nightfall.
Castillo de la Concepción, San Julián, Castillo de los Moros, Galeras and Atalaya would be a good tourist attraction if the visitor could see them illuminated, without it, and thanks to the current advances in energy efficiency and reduction of light pollution, suppose a great cost for the municipality.We believe that if the most excellent council agrees to contact electricity companies that are willing to take part in this initiative, the economic cost would be minimal and in turn the benefits would affect both the companies and their image and the citizen.Therefore, we will carry out the campaign starting today, Thursday, July 23, to make the citizen aware of the benefits that would come if Cartagena, which aspires to be a World Heritage Site, begins by illuminating the castles that in so many historical events of our country played a leading role.
