You can visit many points of interest near your holiday cottage and appreciate Murcia’s heritage and culture. The Murcia Cathedral, which took almost 300 years to complete, distinguishes itself with its massive size and the combination of three architectural styles: Baroque, Gothic and Renaissance. Built in the 14th century over the Moorish Alcazar, the Santa Clara la Real Convent Museum now houses Islamic and Christian religious artefacts. While Monteagudo Castle was built in medieval times, you can spot a modern statue of Jesus Christ on top of the castle walls. You’ll be impressed with the vast selection of artefacts at the Murcia Archaeological Museum, many of which date back to the Bronze Age and Iron Age, including Leon de Coy, a fourth-century BC lion statue.
