Things To Do in Murcia

Explore the Cathedral of St. Mary in Murcia

The majestic Cathedral of St. Mary in Murcia is the only cathedral still in use in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cartagena in Spain, and it is well worth a visit. It was constructed between 1394 and 1465 and is visited by throngs of visitors every year. It is a fusion of several architectural styles. Your Instagram photos will look amazing against this stunning Baroque façade overlooking the Cardenal Belluga Plaza, which has massive columns as well as a magnificent sculpture of the Virgin Mary with the Archangel. While walking through the various hallways and chapels, keep an eye out for the tomb of King Alfonso X of Castile, which is located at the entrance. The bell tower, which was built over a period of 250 years, is, nevertheless, the cathedral's most notable feature and is worth a visit. It is the second-highest bell tower in Spain after Seville's Giralda, and it stands at 93 metres tall and has more than 25 bells.

Visit the Real Casino De Murcia

Originally built as a gentleman's club in the mid-19th century, the landmark structure is a must-see site that you should not miss. Despite the fact that it bears the name "El Real Casino de Murcia," El Real Casino de Murcia has nothing to do with gambling. The huge ballroom, complete with shimmering chandeliers and an exclusive collection of paintings, portraits, and music, is the club's most notable feature, which is still in operation as a private club. Francisco Salzillo, a famous Spanish sculptor, created the frescoes that decorate the ceiling. Additionally, the billiard area, with its geometric ceiling, merits special attention for its lavish interior design. Do also take note of the cultural events that are held on the grounds every year during the months of March and April, as well as the restaurant that serves delectable cuisine.

Visit the Terra Natura Animal Park

Terra Natura Animal Park is a popular family-friendly animal park located on 165,000 square metres of land that includes a zoo, a safari, and a waterpark. Terra Natura Animal Park is open from April to October. Black jaguars, rhinoceros, and sea lions are among the unique species that call this sanctuary home. Visitors like the excitement of night safaris, which often last a couple of hours and offer a thrilling adventure experience for visitors. An invisible barrier keeps you from coming into close touch with the park's animals, and a knowledgeable guide ensures that you have a pleasant experience.
