Cathedral de Santa Maria, 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.

  • Each cathedral holds its own, his time and his stories. We couldn't do cultural visit because it was Monday; We entered equally and it's worth a lot, even without explanation.

  • The outside is beautiful, with the main facade full of sculptures. The interior is Gothic and has a chapel (of los Vélez), impressive.
