- Visit the beautiful Murcia Cathedral (Cathedral de Santa Maria), a building that took over 300 years to build. It has a chequered history, having replaced a once grand mosque in the 13th-century. Lovers of classical architecture will adore the blend of Baroque, Gothic and Renaissance styles.
- Sip on delicious, roasted coffee in one of the many cafés lining Calle de la Trapería, a tourist circuit that was originally the site for Murcia’s cloth merchants. There are some cute little boutique shops here as well.
- If you go to Murcia, you have to see the opulence of the Casino. Built in 1847 as a gentleman’s club, the Casino is a decorative splash of Moorish design and luxurious décor. Afterwards, wind down with an evening stroll along Paseo del Malecón, Murcia’s riverside, before dipping into a tapas bar to sample the city’s finest wines and cuisine.
