The Murcia region
The Region of Murcia enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters (an average of 11C in December and January) and warm summers (where the daily maximum regularly exceeds 40°C). The average annual temperature is 18°C.
As well as top range resorts, with excellent beaches, the region offers a large number of attractions, from typical Spanish towns to the bustle of Murcia city with its shops and historical sites.
The region is a major producer of fruits, vegetables, and flowers for Spain and the rest of Europe. Excellent wineries have developed near the towns of Bullas, Yecla, and Jumilla, as well as olive oil near Moratalla. Murcia is mainly a warm region which has made it very suitable for agriculture.
The inland area of the Murcia region has much to offer. Here you will find the real Spain. The region is typically Spanish, the people are extremely friendly and helpful and the area is as yet largely unspoilt by the tourist trade.
From small villages to the city of Murcia - there is something for everyone.
From Easter to October, regular local fiestas add an extra spark of interest with colorful processions and dazzling firework displays.
Cartagena’s and Lorca’s Holy Weeks’s processions have been declared of International Tourist Interest, together the Murcia's "Bando de la Huerta" and "Burial of the Sardine", included in its Spring Festivities.
Cartagena’s main festivities are the Carthagineses y Romanos , re-enacting the Punic Wars. They have been declared of National Tourist Interest.
The Águila’s Carnival is one of the most important and colourful of Spain.
The Spanish, make the mid–day meal their biggest, stretching it out for hours. From midday to mid–afternoon, everything shuts down, except of course for the restaurants.
The evening meal is late, anywhere from about 9pm to midnight.
Restaurant hours are typically 1:00pm – 4:30pm for lunch and 9:00pm to 12:00 midnight for dinner.
Menu del Día – This is a fixed price meal. It’s a great way to taste some standard Spanish food, without the worry of a long menu. The prices for a menu del día almost always include bread, water and wine or beer, with a coffee at the end. They are very good value.
Menu – The principal ingredients of local Murcian dishes are the fresh produce of the Huerta (market garden – the fields of Murcia) and rice, fish and seafood from the nearby Mar Menor and the Mediterranean Sea.
The region also produces fine wines among which the most known are Jumilla and Yecla.
“Tapas” are snacks designed to be served with your drink. It’s widely believed that the name comes from the custom of the barman covering your glass of sherry with a slice of bread, cheese, or salami to keep the flies from drinking too much – “tapar” means to cover in Spanish.
The Region of Murcia serves authentic Mediterranean cooking: cereals, vegetables and olive oil are the base of this cuisine, which finds its source of inspiration in the market garden - natural, authentic, tasty and with a character all of its own.
The roasts, salted fish, fish and shellfish from the Mar Menor are equally appreciated. However, the Region of Murcia is also well-known for its rice, sausages, preserved foods, nuts, aromatic plants, fruit and confectionery.
The Murcians prepare their rice in many ways. Apart from the typical rice with vegetables, the traveller can also choose between rice with rabbit and snails, rice with pork or "caldero", a typical coastal dish, made by cooking rice in abundant fish stock.
Although vegetables form a great majority of Murcian dishes, as we have seen other ingredients are also used. Besides fish, meat is also a very important component of the local cooking and meat lovers who visit the region will enjoy the range of dishes on offer. These include kid and suckling lamb.
The very famous and unique "chuletas de cordero al ajo cabañil" are suckling lamb chops served with a dressing comprised of chopped garlic, vinegar and a bay leaf. Worth special mention is the game, especially rabbit, hare, partridge and quail.
The local meat pie and hind deer pie are very original contributions to Spanish gastronomy.
For desserts try the exellent paparajotes - lemon leaves fried in crispy batter and dusted in sugar and cinammon -, leche frita (fried milk!), fig sorbet...
The Murcia City / Campo de Ricote area
