Murcia, Spain

Discover a city full of light and charm

History, culture, architecture, art, nature... Murcia has all of this and much, much more

You’ll find the lovely city of Murcia on a plain surrounded by mountains, beneath the Segura River. Its enviable spot in the fertile Mediterranean countryside has filled this city with over a thousand years of history.

In Murcia, you’ll find unique historical, artistic and cultural heritage. On top of great buildings like the Cathedral, with its blend of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles, you’ll also discover great examples of Baroque and 19th century architecture, such as the Casino and Teatro Romea.

But Murcia also has a culinary style all its own, with traditional dishes like zarangollo (onion and courgette scramble) and pastel de cierva (a sweet and savoury chicken pie). Wander aimlessly through its charming squares and gardens, including Plaza de las Flores and Paseo del Malecón; experience the traditional local festivities or discover the beauty of the Mediterranean forest at El Valle y Carrascoy Regional Park, just a 15-minute drive from the city, with unbeatable views of the Segura River Valley.
