A university city in the southeast of Spain, Murcia's architectural showpiece is an ornate cathedral of chaotic confusion from Gothic to Baroque. The Plaza Cardenal Belluga stands in contrast to the colorful Palacio Episcopal (18th Century) and the modern lines of the 1990 city hall annex. It has a population of around the 689,591 mark, many of which are students. Sitting on the Segura River on the Iberian Peninsula, you won't get washed away by rain, but you will have hot summers with mild winters. Not exactly on the tourist radar, it has a long tradition of being an agricultural enclave where fruit and vegetables spring up and gorgeous flowers are grown, hence it is known as "Europe's orchard". Amidst the flowers and vegies, coworking spaces are also springing up to cater to those not into getting their hands dirty in the earth.
Murcia is a laid-back city awash in history with the same sandy shoreline stretching for miles as the other Costa holiday hubs. One thing that it does lack is the hordes of tourists seeking sunshine and sangria. You will find plenty of nearby sites to meander around, such as the city of Cartagena with its huge Roman theater. You can indulge in some scuba diving and crawl around the ocean floor, gorge on fresh seafood that is virtually still flapping on your plate or go and chat to the whales on a cruise. Murcia is known for its local cuisine of mouth-watering offerings, student revelry and its Holy Week procession with works of art by the famous Murcian sculptor, Francisco Salzillo.
Murcia is a town where coworking spaces are filling the void for those students, graduates and remote workers who are over working from the local cafe and being tempted to scoff too much vino.
