About Murcia

Located in the southeast of the Spanish mainland the city borders Castile-La Mancha in the north, the region of Valencia in the east, the Mediterranean Sea in the south, and Andalusia in the west. Murcia's History dates back to 825 when the city was founded.

It is an open and dynamic city with a privileged situation in the Mediterranean. Historically Murcia could not afford room for open spaces within the city walls; this has resulted in the surrounding area being a wide green belt composed of a succession of gardens, parks and green areas along the river banks. Two of its most attractive nature parks are El Valle Nature Reserve and El Puerto - Carrascoy mountain range.
