Located on a flat coastal plain, surrounded by majestic mountains, you will find the historically-rich metropolitan city of Murcia. Founded over two thousand years ago, this southeastern Spanish city is of Arabic origin, dating back to when Iberian tribes inhabited the area. Evidence of these earliest origins can be found throughout the city, as can periods of Moorish residence.
When you think of Murcia, you probably think of water. There are over 200 beaches settled on two distinct bodies of water (the Mediterranean Sea, and the Menor Sea), as well as a major river – the Segura. Historically, of course, it was important to be near water, and this prime location is what the success of this now-bustling city was based on.
Tourists from all over the world are drawn to Murcia for its history, mild climate, fantastic beaches, abundant natural flora and fauna, and delicious local cuisine. World travellers will never be out of things to see or do – some of which we’re going to discuss today.

An 18th century cathedral in the Baroque style. Designed by Fray Antonio de San Jose, the floor is laid out in the shape of a Latin cross.
An 11th century fortress which has had many purposes over the years – including a border castle, grain store, and prison. In excellent condition, it is located on top of a high hill overlooking the city.
Murcia Cathedral & Museum

The interior is predominantly Gothic, while the outside is a mixture of Renaissance and Baroque styles. There is also a museum attached to the cathedral, where visitors can learn of its unique history.
Dedicated to the famous sculptor, Francisco Salzillo, the museum features many of his best large sculptures – as well as his infamous crib.
First planted in the 19th century romantic style, the last original flora (which you absolutely must see) are the large ficus situated just off the central path.
