Cathedral de Santa Maria, Murcia

Must see · Art Museum · Religious Site
You can merely stare at the ornate facade of the mixed Baroque and Gothic Cathedral de Santa Maria and come away feeling satisfied. But inside the 14th-century cathedral sit three intricately detailed chapels, which are not to be missed. Of these, the Chapel of Junterones owns a reputation as one of the Spanish Renaissance's finest. Head up the iconic 90-m (300-ft) bell tower, where some 25 bells toll. Beneath the main altar lies the heart and entrails of Alfonso X, the medieval king of Castile, León and Galicia.

  • A beautiful cathedral in the centre of the city. Worth a visit and enjoy a coffee outside in the plaza before moving on.  more »
  • We've been in many a cathedral, but this is an eye opener. It's so grand inside. Really pleased we dropped in.  more »
