Murcia is Spain’s seventh largest city, home to half a million people including a large student population. Located in the Murcia Region in the southeast of Spain, this city offers a relaxed environment with numerous cultural sights. Don’t miss the Cathedral of Murcia for its ornate, baroque architecture. Enjoy the arts at Museo de Bellas Artes and Museo Arqueologico and spend a few hours lounging in the Jadin Floridablanca under the banyan trees. Dine at mouth-watering tapas bars (said to be the best in the country) and stroll through the old town winding through ancient Moorish buildings and tucked away cafes.
From Murcia, you can cruise the Mediterranean coastline with your Murcia car hire, touring nearby cities such as Alicante, Almeria and Malaga.
