Carthaginians and Romans Festival, Cartagena, Murcia (September 10th – 21st). Re-enactments and ancient military ceremonies: More than four thousand Cartagena people participate in these Festivals that began in 1990 to relive the events of the Second Punic War of more than 2,200 years ago. During the Feast days, all the heroic events that occurred in the period that began around the year 227 are revived, with the foundation of Qart Hadasht by Asdrúbal Janto El Hermoso and ending in the year 209 BC with the conquest of the city by the Roman legions, creating a magical environment. The program includes different daily theatrical performances that allow visitors to relive history in the majestic scenes of the city. During the Fiestas, visitors and locals travel through the city participating in the various recreational activities organized by the Carthaginians and the Romans, and accompany the Carthaginian troops and the Roman legions who disembark in the port and parade to the Carthagonova stadium, and is the site chosen by visitors to continue the party every night, visiting the craft market and enjoying the wide variety of specialties of the Cartagena cuisine.  In the camp, the festeros offer the public more than one hundred free activities among which we can highlight the Aspar Tests with playful activities for children offered by the Carthaginian Council and the Feriae Latino with representations and typical Roman meals offered by the Roman Senate. Full schedule (Spanish website): http://cartaginesesyromanos.es/

Tornadoes out to sea ahead of forecast storms: A bit northeast of us. Tornadoes out to sea across the Comunidad Valenciana yesterday (Friday) evening sparked alarm and curiosity among bathers on beaches in Alboraia (Valencia province), and Jávea and Guardamar del Segura at the far north and south of the province of Alicante. Normally a prelude to the so-called gota fría, when warm and cold air collide and produce torrential rain, flash floods and high winds for several days on the Mediterranean, tornadoes out to sea are surprisingly common.
