Murcia guide Murcia city see also hotels in Murcia.

Murcia city, capital of Murcia province in SE Spain, on the Segura River. The city lies in one of the finest irrigated garden regions in Spain. The silk industry, a traditional occupation for many years, has declined. There are food-processing, tanning, textile, and other light industries. Lead, silver, sulfur, and iron are mined nearby and aluminum is produced. See also Murcia airport.

The region of Murcia is steeped in history. To the south the 2,500-year-old port city of Cartagena is full of artefacts and buildings that date back as far as the Punic Wars. So is the hauntingly beautiful shell of a bombed-out cathedral behind it and the nearby castle of La Concepción which crowns the hill in front of the harbour.

Much of Murcia's charms come from the region being off the beaten track - at least as far as mass tourism is concerned. But even so, it is remarkably easy to get to and to get around.

Close to the regional capital is the Roman spa town of Archena where a hot spring feeds the baths and pools which can still be experienced at what is now a health resort.
