Cathedral de Santa Maria, Murcia

4.7
#1 of 16 in Historic Sites in Region of Murcia
You can merely stare at the ornate facade of the mixed Baroque and Gothic Cathedral de Santa Maria and come away feeling satisfied. But inside the 14th-century cathedral sit three intricately detailed chapels, which are not to be missed. Of these, the Chapel of Junterones owns a reputation as one of the Spanish Renaissance's finest. Head up the iconic 90-m (300-ft) bell tower, where some 25 bells toll. Beneath the main altar lies the heart and entrails of Alfonso X, the medieval king of Castile, León and Galicia.

    The Cathedral is in the 14th century, a tower of 93 m which is the second highest in Spain, although its principal architecture is Gothic also has other influences like the Baroque architecture, architecture of Renaissance and neoclassical architecture. Admission is free, this beautifully preserved. I advise your visit.
