Cathedral de Santa Maria, Murcia
(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. With our custom trip planner, Murcia attractions like Cathedral de Santa Maria can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The Cathedral might like more to lovers of architecture, I emphasize the good atmosphere that give the terraces for dining or tapas, plus is the meeting place of many Murcia activities during the year so you have to visit it.

  • A beautiful cathedral, very much worth visiting. Not only is it spectacular from the outside, it is lovely inside with lots of little chapels. However, it is not so large that you would get bored. 
  • Deserves a lot worth a stopover to visit this great and beautiful masterpiece. Free access, once inside you can enjoy its solemnity and grandeur not apparent outside its harmonious architecture, characterized by the number of chapels that possesses, all with a minimalist design, opposed by a very ornate main hall where masses are held normally.
