Why to visit

Southern Spain has always been a popular tourist destination, and although Murcia is one of the least-visited cities in the region, it has plenty to offer. It is most famous for being home to sculptor Francisco Salizzo, while its beautiful baroque architecture makes it quintessentially Spanish. Many stunning untouched beaches surround it, and the centre is extremely safe and home to lots of very friendly locals. Self-drive is a fantastic way to get from Murcia to the coastal beaches and the surrounding parks.

Transport

San Javier Airport, the main air hub of the region, is located 17 miles from the city. Alicante Airport, less than an hour’s drive away, is also a great alternative. The city can easily be explored on foot, although the best way to discover beyond the sculptures and museums is with car rental in Murcia. This will give you the opportunity to visit the popular tourist city of Alicante or the historical coastal city of Cartagena. Petrol is cheaper here than in the UK, making self-drive tours an affordable way to discover the area.

What to see and do

After organising Murcia car hire, it is easy to make the five-mile drive to La Fuensanta Sanctuary, where stunning views of the entire city can be enjoyed, especially at sunset. A drive through the mountains south towards the Mediterranean coast will lead you to the picturesque seaport of Cartagena, where numerous ancient remains can be seen. Just minutes outside of the city is Monteagudo and an impressive Moorish castle, while continuing northeast will take you to the city of Alicante, famous for its castle, a must-see for all budding historians.
