Murcia is a university city in southeastern Spain and the capital of a region also named Murcia. This was one of the first places in Spain I ever visited. While at secondary school, we had a exchange with a Murcia school. But I did not remember much but then it has been a long time. And I was a school girl. I loved revisited and taking in sights that I probably already seen, but now enjoy them through adult eyes.Plaza Cardenal Belluga is the city’s architectural showpiece, where the ornate cathedral, with its mash-up of styles from Gothic to baroque, and the colorful 18th-century Palacio Episcopal stand in striking contrast to the modern 1990s Ayuntamiento (city hall) annex by architect Rafael Moneo. This was a first port of call after arriving late afternoon after our drive from Almeria.
The next day, we went to find Plaza De La Flores and Teatro Romano.
We also went to the Monasterio de Santa Clara la Real which is a museum in a convent showcasing Christian & Islamic art, artifacts & exhibits on Murcia history. So interesting and very peaceful.
By the university, I came across a shop I can only think of a Spanish Home Bargains. I was feeling hungry and just wanted a biscuit or a cake and we found these gluten free biscuits.
We walked back to the river, to see if we could get any drone shots, but it did not work well as there was too much interference. When then popped into a local supermarket for some snacks. This supermarket was tiny but had a whole section for gluten free products. I could not believe it.
