Cathedral of Murcia
Murcia is a lively town and has a beautiful city centre with its impressive cathedral and the famous casino – a club for the wealthy entrepreneurs of the town.

The Segura river forms an attractive part of the city with a nice river bank and beautiful bridges.

The Real Casino de Murcia – the city’s social club, was erected in 1847 and has been completely renovated from 2006 and now shines in its full splendour again.

At the promenade along the river Segura
Not far from Murcia, we saw a hill with something on top, so we drove closer and discovered that it is a huge Jesus statue on top of a hill. It was built in 1951 after the first statue from 1926 was destroyed during the Civil War. The figure is 14 m tall.

We will continue now our way south to the area of Cartagena – more next!
