Holidays in Murcia
The area and getting around
Besides the ubiquitous baroque style predominant in the city’s buildings, there are many special landmarks that are simply a must-see in Murcia. First and foremost is the Catedral de Murcia just north of the Segura River in the city centre, which is amazing both outside and inside, and boasts fabulous views of the city from its bell tower. Don’t miss the Royal Casino, with its stunning moorish style interior in every room! Murcia also boasts several outdoor architectural marvels, including Plaza Cardenal Belluga, Plaza de las Flores, and Plaza Julian Romea, all situated in the city centre.A never-ending party
It doesn’t matter if it’s just another Wednesday or a Monday afternoon in the winter, the nightlife in Murcia is always bustling. A firm favourite is Las Tascas in the city centre around the Santa Eulalia area. Bars here are open every day of the week until 4 am with some of the lowest prices in Europe, so it is a feast for those wishing to drink and dance the night away. If you prefer to party during the day and early evening, head for the ‘terraces’ of Plaza de Flores or the ‘tontondromo’ in Paseo Alfonso X, where you can also enjoy the best authentically Murcian tapas that come free with any drink you order. Just two or three of these is like an entire meal!

If you visit during the summer, the Floridablanca Gardens offers a respite from the scorching heat, with colourful flowers, many shaded areas, and beautiful fig trees – a perfect spot for an amorous picnic or a lovely relaxing stroll. Enjoy a refreshing drink and toast your love in one of the ‘terrazas.’ This is bound to be a holiday you will both always treasure!Murcia for families
