Murcia - Things To Do

The cathedral of Santa María, which was begun in the 14th century, is a mixed bag of Renaissance and Baroque architecture and took 300 years to complete but is a must-see building when you have bought your property in Murcia Spain. The Glorieta, next to the Segura River, is traditionally the centre of the town. This a pleasant landscaped square, built in the 18th century. Pedestrian areas cover most of the old town, centred around Calle Platería and Calle de la Trapería. The Casino, a social club opened in 1847, has a sumptuous interior that includes a Moorish-style patio.

As befits a thriving regional capital with a population of 420,000, Murcia has more entertainment possibilities than anyone could need. If this is important to you then be sure to locate properties for sale in Murcia near these buildings. It's a regular stopping-off point for top live acts - national and international - on tour in Spain and has a thriving club scene. There are two very good football teams (with a rivalry to match) and for all those retail needs, the shopping is as good as any in south-east Spain and includes an outlet of the country's flagship department store chain, El Corte Inglés.
