Mini guide to Murcia


Murcia is the capital of the province of the same name, and lies a short way inland from the Costa Brava in southeast Spain. It is a large city with several museums of interest to visitors, and some impressive old churches, of which the cathedral is the most striking.

The Santa Maria Cathedral, located in the heart of the city, was originally constructed in 1394 on the site of a former mosque; a flood in the 18th century destroyed much of it, and what you see today was rebuilt after this disaster. Nevertheless, its Baroque façade is a wonder to behold; if you climb the 92-metre high tower, you will be rewarded with a fine panorama of the city.

The cathedral is flanked by other old buildings of interest - the Episcopal Palace and El Almudi (The Granary), which also date back to the 18th century. There are plenty of museums that are worth a look too, including: the Archaeological Museum; the Fine Arts Museum; and the Salzillo Museum, which contains images created for use in the Good Friday procession for which the town is famous.

The city has enough department stores to keep shoppers happy, including the Corte Inglés, which stocks a fantastic variety of items and is home to shops selling artwork and fashionable clothing. Murcia is a large city and there are plenty of restaurants and bars which become very lively at night.

There are many nearby attractions too, not least of which are the gorgeous beaches of the Costa Brava, where towns like Alicante and Cartagena cater to a steady stream of holidaymakers.

A good network of roads connects Murcia to other Spanish cities: the A7 leads to coastal cities like Valencia and Barcelona, the A92 goes west to Granada and Sevilla, while the N-301 leads to Madrid, 400kms away. There are also daily trains as well as long-haul buses to and from the capital. Though Murcia has an airport, nearby Alicante is better connected for international flights.
