Murcia Cathedral (Catedral de Murcia) Tours

Murcia Cathedral (Catedral de Murcia)
To see and experience Murcia’s cathedral is a true feast for the eyes and senses. Its exterior is a vision of Baroque and Renaissance styles, with a bell tower that literally towers 95 meters over the city. The soaring structure houses 25 bells, each with their own name, and which have, in times past, together served to warn of various events from floods to wars and celebrations.

Built starting in 1394 on the site of a former mosque, the church is a mish-mash of styles given that its growth continued until the 18th century. Its Gothic interior is no less impressive than the exterior, featuring 23 different chapels — the most notable of them is Los Velez with its magnificent, star-shaped vaulted ceiling. The cathedral is also home to a museum, where you can discover a range of religious artifacts, as well as spy the excavated remains of the former mosque.

Practical Info

The cathedral is centrally located in Murcia’s old town. Take advantage of your visit here by grabbing a bite to eat at one of the square’s outdoor restaurant terraces as you enjoy views of the church’s flamboyant façade. Note that Murcia is a short trip away from the neighboring coastal city of Cartagena, making both easy and rewarding stops while in the region.
