The Murcia region
Located at the South-East corner of the Iberian Peninsula, between the regions of Andalusia, Castile-La Mancha and Valencia, the region of Murcia occupies an area of 11,317 km2 (2.2% of the total surface area of Spain), bordering the province of Albacete in the North, the province of Alicante in the East, the provinces of Granada, Albacete and Almería in the West, and the Mediterranean in the South-East.
The region of Murcia has the typical Mediterranean semi-arid subtropical climate: namely an average annual temperature of 21ºC, with hot summers (registering absolute maximum temperatures of 40ºC) and mild winters (an average temperature of 12ºC in the winter months of December and January).
The number of days per year with clear skies is 120-150, with approximately 2,800 sun-hours per annum. In general rain is scarce throughout the region (approx. 300-350 mm/year), falling mainly in the spring (April) and autumn (October), leaving the summer an eminently dry season.
As a result of its intense historical tradition, the reiterative superposition of cultures, its strategic location as a Mediterranean enclave and its transitional character as a border territory mid-way between the Meseta and Andalusia, the Murcia Region retains innumerable vestiges of the past, making it an ideal meeting-point where History and tradition have been instilled with new life and placed at the visitor’s disposal. The abundant remains and archaeological sites include rock-paintings in cave-shelters dating back to the Iberian period, the splendour of Roman antiquity with its urbanistic refinement and penchant for the theatrical, Visigoth cities, Arab medinas, Christian castles, watch-towers, churches and temples, civil and military constructions...
This ample historical, artistic, architectural and cultural heritage can be contemplated and admired in a diversity of natural settings, in the actual locations where the monuments themselves were erected, or within the thematic spaces provided by the Region’s complete network of museums. The Region of Murcia is thus likened to a rich printed fabric upon which History has been depicted for our contemplation.

The Region of Murcia is outgoing by nature, with strong Mediterranean roots. The people have always prided themselves on their use of social gatherings as the ideal way of giving thanks for the marvellous climate and the generous fertility of the land, which gives shelter and hospitality to both inhabitants and strangers. Throughout the year it is possible to attend a plethora of events in the Region in which passion alternates with colour, joy with restraint, vitality with History and fervour with popular exaltation.
From January to December festivals move between pageantry and participation: from Carnival to Easter Week, from the Spring Festival -culminating in the spectacular Burial of the Sardine- to the Romans and Carthaginians pageants, from the Moors and Christians and the smell of gunpowder and blunderbusses to the Wine Horses, from the festival of the Grape Harvest to the Immaculate Conception and Christmas Eve, from the masterly Epiphany mystery play to the May Crosses, from the marine processions in honour of Our Lady of Carmen to the Romerías (local pilgrimages) inland, from the ever colourful Huerta (Farming) Festival to the profound, heart-rending flamenco-style Mine Song Festival. The festivities of the Region of Murcia are full of spectacular and profoundly felt sentiment.

25 Aug 2012
Having just returned from a very hot week in Spain i thought i would write a few words about our stay. We found the apartment had everything we required and was very clean and tidy. As my elderly parents travelled with us it was very important to have lift access and this was readily avilable at all times with this apartment being the only one on the top floor and we didnt have to wait for the lift once. It was very quiet and private as there was no one in the apartment that was next to our terrace. Not sure it would feel so private if there had been someone in it as there is only a small wall between the two terraces. It was lovely to sit out in the cooler evening and had no trouble at all with mosquitoes.I spent most afternoons cooling off in the lovely pool which was not too busy even though it was August. There is a smaller balcony off the two beedrooms that has shade most of the day so that was nice when ths sun was at its strongest. A lovely clean and safe complex. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
