Mountains

My city is surrounded by mountains so it has got a nice landscape. Some mountains that we can see: la cresta del gallo, sierra de carrascoy, colmbares, altaona, etc.

Huerta de murcia
We can also point out the plain of Murcia, which reflects the oldest and rustic life. This atmosphere is much more welcoming because it is full of traditional families with homes near their crops, thanks to this we have these so fresh and natural landscapes.

Observe large number of lemons, vegetables and mulberry.

The weather
If you go to Murcia you will enjoy great weather. The average temperature is 18ºC, but in summer is too hot.

Monuments and places of interest
When you are in Murcia don´t forget to see La Catedral de Santa María (the cathedral). It´s very important and it has different architectural influences: Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance, but especially Ghotic.
The cathedral has the second highest bell tower in Spain, after Sevilla.

Apart from the cathedral we can speak of the famous Glorieta that has long been the center of Murcia and the plaze of Santa Isabel which is perfect for meeting up with friends and go shopping on the Gran Via.

The plaza of Santo Domingo is the meeting point more appreciated by Murcianos where you can go to pubs at night and of course walking the streets of rags and silverware while eating an ice-cream.
