RUTA DE TANIT · Costa Blanca Fenicia
5 days · €450
Spring · May 15 to 19
Fall · October 9 to 13
Under the patronage of Tanit, ancient goddesss of Ibiza, we carry out different cultural voyages aboard the schooner Atrevida “Daring”, visiting the main Phoenician settlements on the coast of Alicante and Murcia.
In previous years we have sailed between Cartagena and Ibiza. The two cities were founded by the Phoenicians and we commemorate that shared past with a sailing trip, a cultural adventure that we named the Tanit Route. During the May 1 Long Weekend in this 2024 we will visit the Tanit sanctuary in Ibiza again, leaving and returning from Alicante on a week-long journey. (link to Route from Tanit to Ibiza)
The other two sailing trips of the Tanit Route along the Phoenician Costa Blanca that we propose depart from La Manga, are shorter: last 5 days, and focus on the Phoenician sites on the Costa Blanca, culminating with a visit to the remains of the Tanit sanctuary in La Illeta de Campello. On both trips we will follow a very small part of the great route that the ancient Phoenician navigators followed from Gadir-Cádiz, passing through Qart-Hadašt-Cartagena, to Ibošim -Ibiza, and much further, to Sicily and Carthage.
The first will be in the Spring, from May 15 to 19. The second in Autumn, from October 9 to 13.
