The region of Murcia has a very varied landscape, ranging from dry irrigated terrain to mountainous areas and plains, vineyards and plateaus. Its capital city, in the heart of the Segura river valley, still preserves remains of the ancient city wall which once surrounded it. The saying goes that it’s beautiful and it’s not mistaken: Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Murcia offers guests the chance to explore and enjoy history, nature and tranquillity in the heart of Murcia.
The best way to get to know the city of Murcia is on foot at a gentle and relaxed pace. Explore its main streets – la Platería and la Trapería –, the open-air street markets, and city squares such as the Cardenal Belluga, home to the Cathedral Church of Saint Mary, Episcopal Palace and Edificio Moneo. Don’t miss the cathedral and its museum, the Velez Chapel and the Junterón Chapel, its baroque façade and views from the tower. Iconic symbols of this city, just like our philosophy at Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Murcia: promoting good service, quality and enjoyment throughout the region.
If you want to admire a true Mediterranean sunset, carry on to the Paseo del Malecón promenade. And if you are looking for a wonderful panoramic view of the city and the Segura river, head up to Quitapesares. The view is even more special at night.
Spring is a great time to get to know the more traditional side of this modern city, with its festivals the ‘Bando de la Huerta’ and ‘Entierro de la Sardina’. But no matter the time of year, sampling Murcia’s cuisine is all about enjoying the finest fresh local produce: murciana salad, rice with beans, zarangollo (scrambled eggs with courgette), pisto (similar to ratatouille)...Guests at Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Murcia never leave without having tried its typical tapas: matrimonios, marineras and paparajotes.
