Murcia : Michelin's recommendations
In the middle of a rich huerta, Murcia extends along the banks of the Segura. This university, commercial and industrial town has grown considerably, and avenues and fine promenades now surround its attractive old quarter. Its pedestrianised streets and small squares create a peaceful atmosphere, complemented by a rich architectural heritage, dominated by the cathedral. The region’s most famous son, Francisco Salzillo (1707-83), was the last of the great sculptors of polychrome works in Spain.
