2. Immerse yourself in History

Spend a day or two visiting Murcia’s historic cities, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Murcia has a stunning cathedral, which showcases a variety of architectural styles as it was continuously being built for over 4 centuries! Murcia City also has fabulous plazas, and for those less interested in history there are huge shopping centres to be visited. Cartagena also has much to give in the way of history, there are incredible roman ruins, including an amazing amphitheatre to visit!

3. Visit the zoo and waterpark Terra Natura

Terra Natura is fun for the whole family with a water park AND an animal and wildlife park. Try not to scream on the Kamikaze, a revolutionary ride where riders feel like they’re freefalling – even the most seasoned water park goer is bound to feel a rush of adrenaline. There’s also relaxation pools, for those who prefer a calmer pace of life and Grace Island, specially designed with the kids in mind – which features a children’s pool and water games. For those who’ve had enough of the site of water after days around the pool, the wildlife park is designed around a new concept of ‘zooimersion’ which recreates the natural habitat of the animals and gives you a chance to get up close and personal with them – I hope none of you are scared of snakes!

Murcia is home to the Sierra Espuna, a wonderful, undulating natural wilderness.
