Flag of MurciaMurcia

Murcia is a one province Autonomous Community.

The region of Murcia, located between the Community of Valencia and Andalucia, was the site of powerful Carthaginian and roman settlements in antiquity, while the long presence of the Moors deetermined its history throughot the Middle Ages. Famous today for its excellent fruit and vegetables, its coast is another major Spanish tourist zone.

Murcia, the capital of the region, is located inland.

Cartagena is the leading port in Murcia. Founded by the Carthaginians in 221 BC and oriinally named Carthago Nova, Cartagena has maintained its importance through the centuries. Its museum has excellent pre-Roman and Roman collections that testify to the transcendence of the great historical role played by the city.

La Costa Calida (The Warm Coast) rims the region of Murcia. Its climate is particularly temperate and it has fine-sand beaches. Of special interest are the Mar Menor, a salt-water lagoon that is part of the Mediterranean and is especially apt for certain water sports. Its most important tourist centres are: Santiago de la Ribera, La Manga del Mar Menor, Puerto de Mazarron, Aguilas and Cartagena.
