    Cartagena

    by solopes Updated Mar 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I must confess that Cartagena was a city voluntarily skipped in my previous trips in the area. This, time, spending a full week close by, I had to have a look, and... I enjoyed it. Not being a definitive must see, Cartagena is a nice city, with lots of history being unveiled in a few places. I write about it in my Cartagena page.

    La Manga del Mar Menor

    by solopes Updated Mar 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the biggest beaches in Spain is not identified in VT (I don't know why), forcing us to post our notes in Cabo de Palos, a village that is located at the entrance of the very long and built stripe of sand. La Manga del Mar Menor is a top destination for children and for adults that like to sleep in the water. The big salty lagoon is shallow and absolutely safe, only with two inconveniences: It's almost impossible to find water deep enough to swim, and the many shells may wound your feet.
    In the ocean side, generally warm and calm, you will have all the conditions for a good bath and swim.
    La Manga del Mar Menor is mainly used by locals, taking advantage of the many apartments to rent (or to sell... I don't know).

    In this second time near Murcia, I had, at last, time to visit. It is a beautiful city, with a splendid cathedral as you may confirm in the tips in my %L[http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/9eab8/3f881/]Murcia page

    Murcy

    by DanielF Updated Feb 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ingenious and efficient irrigation methods brought by the Arabs turned one of the dryest areas in the continent into a true garden where some of the most reknown Spanish vegetables grow. The city of Murcia, with around 375.000 inhabitants, has grown around the agricultural prosperity of its surrounding "huerta".

    This picture shows the Barroque façade of the beautiful cathedral of Murcia, the centre of the monumental area that overlooks the Segura river.

    Moratalla is really a picturesque town in North-western Murcia, with its maze of winding streets arond the massive church and the ruins of the castle. You can see more pictures in my Moratalla page.

    A typical small town in the sierras of Murcia. Calasparra is known for the quality of the rice grown in this area, used in many of the typical dishes.
