La Avispa is located in the outer bay of Cartagena on the west side. The anchorage is mostly sand and there are some small sandy beaches, but no type of development exists. In the big bay are also large commercial vessels, mostly tankers. In eastern or southeast winds the place is well protected. High up on the mountain are several fortresses (Batería del Atalayón, Batería de Castillitos, Batería de Jorel) which can be reached on foot via a beaten track.
The wind should turn east again and so we drive the 5 nm around the mountains to La Azohía.

Aguilas railway More

In Spain, the rail network is much smaller than in the rest of Europe and so it is not common that a place with 30,000 inhabitants has a rail and train station. Anguilas is already an exception and the reason is in the past, when around 1870 the ore mines led the area to economic recovery and the iron ore was transported by rail. From these years, the railway network was built and expanded as well as the loading bridge in Anguilas to load the ore on ships. Today the station is still used for people trains to Murcia. There is also a small museum about the expansion and the dismantling up to the present time.
