Murcia is a very nice city at the South East of Spain. It is one of Spain’s least known regions, and first-time visitors are often surprised by the diversity of this small region and the friendliness of its people, called Murcianos.
The city of Murcia is situated on the banks of the river Segura, surrounded by fertile landscapes with huge fruit and vegetable plantations. For this reason it is also called “Europe’s Orchard”, as fruits, vegetables and spices are exported all over Europe (and beyond).
Murcia is the perfect city for strolling around. But it is awful to drive in, with very complicated one-way roads and crowded carparks). Everything worth seeing is within walking distance. The most famous commercial streets are Trapería, Platería and la Avda. Alfonso X el Sabio. The Paseo del Malecón near the River Segura is also a very nice walk.
In Murcia city you can taste vegetable and rice dishes or wonderful seafood dishes.
There are many tapas bars throughout the city, especially in the Plaza de las Flores and the Gran Via Alfonso X area. A great place to enjoy morning coffee, tapas or rice is in the lovely Cathedral square, Plaza Cardenal Belluga. There are restaurants and bars to suit all budgets, from the cheaper restaurants in the Plaza San Juan and Plaza de Julian Romea areas to the high class restaurant of the Restaurant Rincon de Pepe.
