Points of Interest
Santa Maria Cathedral
The Cathedral of Murcia is a key piece of Spanish Baroque architecture. It is one of the most important buildings in the city and, of course, in the whole region, and stands out for its amalgam of architectural styles ranging from Gothic to Neoclassicism.
Trapería and Platería Streets
A few minutes away from the cathedral are the two most famous and historic streets of Murcia, known as Trapería and Platería. A lively and full of life area where several epochs coexisted adding cultural value to the area.
Alfonso X Promenade
This pedestrian avenue is the perfect place to take a break from an intense day of walking through the streets of Murcia. It is one of the few shaded avenues and it often hosts festivals, making it one of the best ways to cool off on a hot day.
