Murcia - Reaching into the Real Spain

Just a few miles inland from the famous Costas, Murcia reflects the rich history and deep-rooted culture of Spain. Much is written about visiting the 'real' Spain away from the coast and Murcia - 30 or so miles from both the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca is a great place to start.


Flamboyance and Festivals

But Murcia is no quaint backwater. The municipality is the seventh largest in Spain and boasts a major university. City life focuses around the Glorieta, a pleasant square on the banks of the Segura River and the pedestrianised areas of the old city.

Flamboyant examples of the Spanish Baroque style can be seen around the city, with the most impressive being the front of the cathedral. And in keeping with this exuberance Murcia is noted for its festivals, with the Easter procession known throughout Spain and the following week brings the Spring Festival Orchard Parade and the 'Burial of the Sardine' with locals parading in colourful costumes.

Fruit and Flowers

The Region of Murcia which surrounds the city is known as Europe's Orchard and with over 300 days of sunshine growers of fruit, vegetables and flowers, can get several harvests a year. Add in vines and olive trees and the countryside is a delight to drive through.

If you do want to visit the coast and experience something different from the holiday beaches then a drive down to the restored Roman amphitheatre at Cartagena will provide a glimpse into the distant past along with its preserved city walls and medieval castle. And talking of castles then the imposing Castillo de Lorca is not to be missed.

Europe's Orchard

Why not use Murcia as a base to explore south eastern Spain. Not only is it a fascinating place in its own right, but the countryside is but an easy car hire away.
