What Is It Like Living In Murcia Spain?
Murcia is a city in south-eastern Spain, however, there are municipalities that fall under the region of Murcia.
Murcia city is a beautiful bustling city filled with modern commodities, modern stores, gyms, things to do and all of this is combined with the beautiful cathedral, university and traditional design of this city. There’s always something to do in Murcia city from vegan restaurants to giant trampoline centres. It’s lively, busy, tourists come and go but it always has a wonderful buzz about it.
Living in Murcia city is like living in any city, it’s fast-paced but really good fun for all ages. There’s also plenty of transport links that can connect you to anywhere in the world.
I wanted to also mention just some of the municipalities that fall under the Murcia region (you can find the rest online) and what it’s like living in these places:
Mazarron – Mazarron is a beach town with a beautiful fishing port, stores, a very busy summer tourism trade and just about everything else a town has to offer.
Alhama De Murcia – Alhama de Murcia isn’t too far from Mazarron however it is located inland and away from the beach. There is a train here that connects you to Murcia city and just like Mazarron, it has everything a town has to offer.
Lorca – Lorca is famous for its eye-catching castle that sits just above the small city. It has easy transport links, shops, cinemas and plenty to do.
Cartagena – Cartagena is an amazing city famous for its naval station. Its a beautiful city with amazing architecture, so much history and plenty to see. It’s a must-see for everyone.
There are so many beaches you must discover, from Mar Menor all the way to the breathtaking beach of Bolnuevo (close to Mazarron). Bolnuveo has camping facilities but also plenty of parking right in front of the beach that looks onto a phenomenal sandstone erosions that are protected and date back to 4.5 million years ago.
Murcia differs from Alicante and Almeria, it has different cuisines, different tastes and a slightly different culture. It’s a wonderful part of Spain where you can find history, beautiful beaches, things to do and local Spanish cuisines and traditions right on your doorstep.
If you like football it also features a large football stadium on the outskirts of the city where they host football matches and even sometimes concerts. Talking of concerts, Sir Tom Jones has also performed inside the Murcia bullring and will be returning.
