"Murcia" Murcia by DanielF

Murcia Travel Guide: 89 reviews and 198 photos

Murcia is a relatively modern city, by Spanish standards. It was founded by Aderrahman II during the Moorish occupation of South Spain, in the IX century. The city took advantage of its location in the middle of the fertile Segura Valley. Apart from the smart irrigation methods imported by the Arabs, there is few left from that time. Most of the buildings of interest in Murcia date back to the splenderous Barroque periode, whose pièce de résistence is the impressive main façade of the cathedral.
