    Plaza Romea

    by solopes Updated Oct 1, 2012
    Murcia

    I couldn't see Romea theatre, under maintenance but could appreciate the nice square that faces it, with a few esplanades and restaurants whose density didn´t spoil the look of the square, with the palace of Gonzalez Campuzano now used as a tourist office.

    Fernandez Caballero

    Fernandez Caballero - Murcia

    Who was Fernandez Caballero? An old man whose statue in Romea place forced me to read, and discover that he was a local musician born in 1835, returning home in 1903 after a long and important work in Zarzuela music that he took around the world.

    To be honest, I must confess that I like Zarzuela, but couldn't identify any of his works. I will pay more attention in the future.

    San Bartolomé

    by solopes Updated Jul 3, 2012
    San Bartolom�� - Murcia

    Dating originally from the 17th century, the church was rebuilt in the 19th and not much remains from the original. In the civil war most of its rich contents was stolen and only part of them could have been recovered and are displayed again.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This picture was taken just entering the village of Benizar.It was the first week of April so all trees in the countryside were in blossom.The agriculture is a very important factor in the economy of Murcia and everywhere you can see lots of plantations of fruit trees principally.This small village dedicate lot of land to almonds trees,there are more than 80.000 almond trees around Benizar and also many olive trees,really it looks beautiful see all trees on blossom during springtime!.

    BENIZAR

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a picture taken at quaint small town of BENIZAR,it is located about 35 miles from Murcia city.I got some relatives here and I visit this village often.It has a medieval castle on top of this hill but now you just can see the ruins and a bit of the walls,so is not a good idea to go up to take a look.
    This is really a nice and quiet village,so if you're stressed and need a break,come to spend a few days at BENIZAR!.

    Anyway the village have
    also a few "Casas Rurales" a kind of accommodattions in Spain is small villages like this,they are like B&B. and with very reasonable prices.

    Othe nice places to visit in Murcia are:
    CARTAGENA
    LA MANGA DEL MAR MENOR
    MAZARRON
    AGUILAS
    YECLA
    CARAVACA DE LA CRUZ
    LORCA
    FORTUNA.
