Holidays in Murcia
Location and orientation
The city of Murcia is located in the southeast of Spain and is the capital of the autonomous region of Murcia. Belonging to the Levante, the east coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the Spanish Murcia is located on the Segura River and is a frequently visited holiday destination within the region thanks to its mild climate and low rainfall. As one of the largest university cities in the country, Murcia is one of the seventh largest cities in Spain and is considered by students to be the regional educational capital.
As a producer and exporter of flowers, vegetables and fruit, Murcia was given the nickname "Europe's Orchard".
Top 3 travel tips
Once you have moved into your holiday home, the cathedral of Murcia is a good place to visit. Built between 1394 and 1465 in the Castilian-Gothic style, the architecture of the church is an interesting combination of different epochs. While the first two floors were still built in Renaissance style, the third floor is in Baroque style, while the bell tower is influenced by both neoclassical and rococo elements.2. Strolling through the venerable alleys of the old town
The venerable old town with its historic buildings is perfect for a relaxing city trip. As a former trading place for raw materials and clothing for the Jewish population, the Old Town Routes tell their very own stories. In the centre, stroll along the streets of Trapería and Platería through small alleys in the typical Spanish style, paying attention to the imposing casino on the Trapería. Built in 1847, the back of the Casino Club has a Moorish courtyard modelled on the Alhambra Castle.3. Taste Murcia's culinary specialities
A city with a long tradition, Murcia's cafés and restaurants are renowned for their culinary delights. Therefore, you should avoid cooking in your apartment with a clear conscience and taste local specialities such as hearty morcilla, a blood sausage dish refined with cinnamon and pine nuts or taste a light stew of zucchini, potatoes and egg with zarangollo. For the small hunger in between, a snack of pastries with meat filling, the so-called Pastel de Carne, before it may be for dessert a lemon leaf coated with dough, the Paparajote, offers itself.
