Although not lapped by the Mar Menor coast, the city of Murcia breathes the sea. It is impossible to separate this city from its marked Mediterranean and fishing spirit, which is present in its architecture, history and, of course, its gastronomy. Thanks to the combination of these three elements, the hotels in Murcia offer travelers everything they could wish for on holiday: comfortable, modern and well connected accommodation in an ideal setting for a few days rest.
Time is not a limit in a city like Murcia. The Center is a very comfortable space where the capital’s main attractions are within walking distance, or by public transport. The hotels located around the Segura River, next to the center, are particularly convenient for guests who are not able to spend the city longer than they would and expect to make the most of their getaway to Murcia to get to know the highlights.
Many visitors to this destination are only found in business trip in Murciaand others choose the city as a stop before continuing your route between Andalusia and the Valencian Community. Luckily for both, you can enjoy a quick visit to the city and discover its charms in just one day. This is why the day of the flowers starts in Plaza de las Flores and the surrounding pedestrianized streets. This is the hub of daily activity in the city, in a commercial and artisan environment, dating back to the Middle Ages. After passing through the Cathedral and wandering through the streets of the Trapería, Soap and Wanderer, visitors and locals, visitors and locals alike can satisfy their appetite with the typical ‘Marinera’ tapa, a delicious Russian twist on a bread cake crowned by an anchoa, opening up an appetite for other culinary specialties in the region of Murcia, such as zarangollo, cod pars and paparajotes.
The evening should end with a walk along the north bank of the Segura river and the obligatory stops at the San Juan de Dios monumental complex, the Old Bridge, the Sardine monument and Paseo del Malecón, before returning to the hotel.
The motto on the city’s coat of arms is an invitation to travelers: “Praise and love old and new”. Perhaps this is the phrase that best summerizes the charm of this land and the attraction it entails as a destination vacations in Murcia. The modern and the traditional have found a steady balance in a city in constant renovation that has not lost the charm and freshness of its characteristic Huertano setting, declared Cultural Heritage Intangible by UNESCO.
Its range of accommodation is also characterized by that motto in which tradition and innovation are complementary terms. Hotels in Murcia such as the Occidental Murcia Siete Coronas are establishments that draw through the city’s culture and tradition to offer its guests an authentic experience without compromising on the most modern luxury and comfort.
