Sightseeing
The Old Town is a great place to admire the rustic feel of the city, while Murcia’s many parks and gardens are great for al fresco dining. Murcia might have lots to offer as a city break, but that doesn’t mean you have to give the golden sands a swerve! They’re utterly breathtaking.

These small mix-and-match dishes are great for sharing with friends and include everything from veggie dishes to meaty stews. For bigger appetites, many restaurants serve a ‘menu del dia’, offering a three course meal for a set price.
