Murcia City Info

Situated between the mountains of Sierra de Orihuela and the Cresta de Gallom, Murcia is beautifully positioned in the Spanish Mediterranean and a great place to visit on holiday. Not only does Murcia have dozens of sunny, picturesque beaches but it is also unique in the way the climate naturally supports a mix of barren landscape and lush green vegetation. Murcia's rich historic association with the Greeks, Phoenicians and the Spanish Moors have led Murcia to become a great place to visit for any foodie interested in fine, local dining. Murcia is famous for its stews, hotpots, baked meats and seafood as well as great Spanish wines. Not only this, but Murcia has some beautiful architecture including cathedrals, palaces and squares which make it a great place to visit.

  • Cathedral de Santa Maria: Located at the Plaza del Cardinal Belluga and in the centre of Murcia, the Cathedral de Santa Maria is the finest Baroque building in the city and a fantastic example of gothic and renaissance style. With amazing features such as the awesome main facade built between 1739-54 by the architect Jaime Bort and the main alter containing the heart of the mediaeval King Alfonso X the Wise the Cathedral really is a must when visiting Murcia.
  • Murcia City Hall: Clad in a local calcite stone, the city hall is a beautifully designed piece of architecture that truly represents the pride of the local Spanish people. With a fantastic view of the main square of Murcia, the City Hall is made up of solid plinths which support a fabulous gallery much like those made famous by numerous Spanish buildings.
  • Murcia beaches: After a day or two of site seeing you will probably be crying out for a relaxing day at the beach. A treat that really is in abundance in Murcia with over 20 beaches to choose from. For golden sands and calm waters head down to Bolnuevo beach for a spot of swimming and beach games, for a more child friendly beach hit Nares beach with a mix of sand and urban play areas for the kids to enjoy
