    Murcia Things to Do

    An astonishing monument, this cathedral mixing three styles - Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic.

    Cartagena Things to Do

    Cartagena's city hall is a modern palace, built with a triangular plant about hundred years ago. The unstable soil, and errors in the construction quickly ruined the building that was closed to recovery, only finished in 2006. Located in a central area, by the sea, its marble facade is really pretty, and, it seems the interior staircase also...

    Yes! That's what I would like to write, " No comments", but (Oh dear me!) in VT on line is the "minimal service" so, under official protest I had to write.

  • Sun

    Cabo de Palos Tourist Traps

    The advertising announces lots of sun, in the Spanish coast, and we have it. However, we are used to find everywhere, structures to allow a careful management of the exposure, providing rented or inclusive shades by the sea.There's no such thing in La Manga. If you want a shade, and you must, because the sun is really constant and strong, you need...

    We went there once, and... it was all. The look inside was somewhat neglected, the food banal, and the service according to the ambiance. No serious complaint, but no reason to return nor to recommend also.

    I am sure that I will be hotly disputed, but the finest sangria I have experienced in Spain, is of the Mazarron kind.Secret recipes are protectively guarded from bar to bar so we were told by various bar owners, who took the matter quite seriously.I was also told, one of the secret ingredients for a decent sangria, is cinnamon sticks.Look out for...

    Los Alcázares Things to Do

    A large beach, in a shallow sea, or, should I say... lake? I visited it while staying in La Manga, for sure, the best option in the area, because there we have the same shallow sea/lake and also the open waters of the warm Mediterranean.

    San Pedro del Pinatar Things to Do

    Staying in La Manga I was curious about the other extremity of the narrow stripe of sand, ending in S Pedro del Pinatar. I went there, had a look, and was surprised by the image and smell of tons of algae. It was not attractive, but the beach is long and wide, however, we had the excellent La Manga waiting for the afternoon swim and didn't go...

    Lo Pagán Things to Do

    I didn't verify but I think that this beach is located in a deeper part of the interior sea, otherwise it would be difficult for adults to swim. I didn't try it, but wouldn't exchange La Manga for it.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ate here twice.

    The restaurant has a fresh fish shop at the front and thorugh back, and on the beach, is the restaurant. Fish is the speciality.

    The first time we had sardines and boquerones (anchovies) and the second time we both had calamares al la Romana - squid cooked in a light batter.

    Favorite Dish: Boquerones
    Sardinas
    Calamares

  • Take a trip up to the castle

    Mula Things to Do

    It's well worth taking the time to get up to the castle in Mula - the views across the plain are superb. Its such a shame they haven't kept the castle up together, but in the state that it is I am sure it could tell so many stories.Easily reached by car or bike you'd need a lot of stamina to get a push bike up there as the way up is very steep....

    This was a quick drink stop in the searing heat, and we were so impressed with it. It was squeaky clean and has a lovely bar area with a further larger seating area thru some double doors.The toilets were very clean and the service we got quick and very polite. Pullling up on a Harley doesn't always get the same results when walking into cafes, but...

    Aledo

    by VinceW Updated Sep 30, 2002

    Favorite thing: Walk through the narrow alleys and cobbled streets of this splendid little Spanish village.

    Fondest memory: The wonderful light that is cast about as sun beats down on whitewash giving the town a surreal feel.
