    Things to see and do in Murcia:

    •The cathedral (baroque front, gothic interiors)
    •The Salzillo Museum (sculpture)
    •The Palacio del Almudi
    •The Iglesia de San Esteban
    •For a good view of Murcia and the surrounding valley, the best place to go is El Valle or the La Fuensanta Sanctuary, both of them in the mountains behind the city. Directions: Go toward Cartagena, and before the mountains (only 5 or 10 km away from Murcia), head towards La Alberca and pass straight by. You will see signs for Santuario de la Fuensanta. Try going there for sunset; the view is incredible.
    •Another place that shouldn't be missed is the Moorish castle on top of the Monteagudo mountain that can be seen from almost anywhere in Murcia. It was converted to Christianity by placing an "open arms" image of Christ on the top. Directions: leave Murcia by the old Alicante road and it will take you 5 minutes to reach. The motorway to Alicante will also take you there. Park the car down the mountain and walk to the top. You can touch Jesus's feet and toes (bigger than footballs!) while having a look at Murcia and his huerta.
    •Murcia has a lot of beautiful beaches. Some of them are still virgin territory, like those between Mazarron and Aguilas, whilst others are very busy places in summer, like La Manga, a strip of land that separates the Mediterranean from a small inland "minor sea" (mar menor).
