Murcia is a wonderful place, and whether you are visiting Murcia for the food, the history or the beaches, the city allows you to slow down and re-energise.
The city is often underrated and offers visitors so much to see and do. And I actually prefer the quieter side this amazing city, with quiet cafes, stunning architecture and vineyards.
Another unique thing to do in Murcia is to take a trip to the Sand sculptures in Bolnuevo Mazarron, you will be blown away by the intricacy of these sculptures.
Great walk starts on the Gran Vía Alfonso X El Sabio, a wide promenade with beautiful trees in the middle and then on to the Museo Arqueológico de Murcia.
For some amazing views take a leisurely hike up to Bateria de Cenizas near La Manga for spectacular views and large canons!
The pink colour comes from the result of the pigment of a bacteria called Halobacterium, which can be found in the salinas.
Spanish food is one of my favourites and a visit to Murcia is no different. One of my favourite things to do in Murcia is to search out local eats and traditional Spanish cuisine.
