A trip to Murcia lets the culinarily adventurous truly indulge.
For something tamer, don’t miss Arroz Huertano, a main dish comprising rice, vegetables, and spices. Then there’s Arroz con Costillejas with pork ribs and veggies for meat lovers. Other main dishes worth trying are Dorada del menor al sal, a delicious fish preparation, and Caldero del mar menor, a tasty rice stew made with rock fish spiced with dried peppers from Murcia.
Murcia's local art and culture
The strategic location of Murcia as a Mediterranean enclave means it has plenty of history. Vestiges of the past include archaeological sites, castles, churches, and towers. Visit the 600-year-old Cathedral, the most important place of worship in Murcia. Swing by the Roman Theatre designed by Rafael Moneo. It combines the architectural features of the Pascual Riquelme palace and the Santa Maria cathedral.
Murcia also has an abundance of museums. Art and history lovers will surely appreciate the many options. Tour the Salzillo Museum, considered the most important in the region and home to a complete collection of the sculpture works of Francisco Salzillo. If you love treasure, head to the National Museum of Sub-Aquatic Archaelogy and gawk at more than 570,000 gold and silver coins extracted from the seabed.
Family holidays in Murcia
The beaches in Costa Calida are by themselves plenty of fun for children. Bask in the sun while your kids build sandcastles, play on sand, or swim in the water. For a change of scenery, bring your little ones to Terra Natura, the region’s biggest waterpark featuring giant slides and swimming pools. There’s also an eco-zoo where children can participate during animal feeding times.
El Valley y Carrascoy Regional Park is the place to go for walks and hikes. Discover nature and wildlife when you bring children for a trip to the park. The trails are marked but you can also opt for a guided trek. Watch out for fantastic vistas of gullies and ravines. For budding scientists, a visit to the Museo de la Ciencia y Agua is a must-do activity. It has a mini-planetarium, astronomy sessions, telescope training, and other workshops designed to stimulate young brains.
Nightlife and going out in Murcia
Murcia owes its vibrant nightlife primarily to the many university students in the region. A typical night out for locals involves meeting up in someone’s house or flat for pre-drinks. As dinner is rarely served before 8pm, the nightlife typically kicks off around 10pm and for some, as late as 2am. This is the time when people head to the tascas, straight roads flanked by bars for drinks, rock music, and lots of fun.
On the road to Puerta Nueva you'll find some clubs playing international music. Other nightlife hotspots are the Old Town, La Flota, and Avenida de los Pinos. Nightclubs in these areas offer a range of music, including techno and pop.
Exploring Murcia's surrounding areas
Murcia villa rentals make an ideal base for excursions in the vicinity. Arrange a day trip to Mar Menor, a saltwater recreation lagoon, known for water sports and fishing. While in the area, visit the quaint villages of San Javier and Los Alcazares.
If you’re searching for an adrenaline rush, go river rafting on the Segura, a medium-sized river. Otherwise, book walking tours of the historic port city of Cartagena and if you’re not up to walking, sign up for Segway excursions. A paleontological tour in the same area is also possible. You’ll search for hidden fossils in the ancient existing architecture all around you.
