Tourist Murcia
Guía de la ciudad de Murcia para estudiantes internacionales (ESP/ENG): Murcia, ciudad universitaria, ciudad para vivirla / University city, a city to experiency first-hand

The Region of Murcia lies at the centre of the Spanish Mediterranean coastal arch. In terms of surface area the region of Murcia is the ninth largest of the Spanish autonomous communities. As a result of its intense historical tradition, the reiterative superposition of cultures, its strategic location as a Mediterranean enclave and its transitional character as a border territory mid-way between the Meseta and Andalusia, the Region of Murcia retains innumerable vestiges of the past, making it an ideal meeting-point.
