No reviews, be the first!

Murcia is a small city with a big cathedral, one of the main reasons for going there. Inland from the popular Costa Calida (Warm Coast) and Mar Menor (Little Sea) lagoon in south-eastern Spain, Murcia is known as the orchard of Spain as it sits in the heart of the rich citrus growing districts. The cathedral was begun in the 14th century on the site of an existing mosque. The bell tower is the tallest in Spain and was built up in five layers of varying styles from the 16th to 18th centuries and contains 25 bells.
