Hotels in Murcia

What to visit One of the most outstanding remains from Arab times in the city of Murcia is the wall that Abd ar-Rahman II ordered be built and the Almunia Real, the second home of the Arab monarchs. The nearby Museo de Santa Clara museum has a large exhibition of remains, utensils and implements from the time. 

Stroll down to the old city from one of our hotels in Murcia to see the streets that were occupied by professional guilds in the Middle Ages and which preserve their names. Within the historical area you will find the 18th century Episcopal Palace with its rococo facade and interior courtyard of churrigueresque influence, and the Cathedral, built in the 14th century and known for its mix of styles, baroque facade and 92-metre-high tower. The 16th century Iglesia de la Merced church is well worth a visit, as areSanta Ana convent and Santo Domingo church

Continue making your way through the city and its architectural footprint. You will come to the neo-classical Murcia City Council building, Casino and Romea theatre. The area around Plaza de las Flores and the neighbourhoods of San Pedro and Santa Catalina are among the most characteristic and lovely in Murcia. Continue your walk to the point where the city meets the outlying agricultural fields. 

If you have time, after spending the night at one of the hotels in Murcia, you can complete your tour of the city by visiting the Archaeological Museum, the Fine Arts Provincial Museum or the Cathedral Museum. 

Did you know that Murcia is called the Vegetable Garden of Europe because of its huge farming output?  The local countryside grows the main products that comprise the gastronomy of Murcia. You can enjoy pistou, chickpea soup, or zarangollo (scrambled eggs with courgettes, onion and sometimes potato), some of the most representative local dishes, at any of the hotels in Murcia. Make sure to wash them down with a D.O. Bullas, Yecla or Jumilla red wine.

Come and see for yourself!
