The region of Murcia offers both tranquil countryside and cities rich in historical landmarks, as it served as the frontier land between Christian Castile and Muslim Andalusia. With attractive main cities and over 150 km (93 mi) of Mediterranean coastline, the region has experienced a resurgence in tourism over the last decade highlighting the area’s cultural festivals, gastronomy, historic sites, and year-round warm weather. The wine country here is lush and, along with its colorful fruit orchards, embodies the region’s untouched natural charm.
