Route of the Castles
 
The Region of Murcia was the last Moorish stronghold after Spain was reconquered. More specifically, the Valley of Ricote became the last Almohad bastion of 16th-century Spain. There was even a time when the entire Andalus Kingdom could be seen from Ricote, which is why most towns in Murcia have castles on top. These castles were built by the Arabs and later used by Christians, mostly belonging to the Order of Santiago. The Castle of Lorca together with the Castle of los Vélez in Mula, and the castles of Jumilla and Santuario de la Vera Cruz de Caravaca, are the best preserved ones, proud survivors after centuries of battles and pillages. If you want to know more about the Castles in the towns of Murcia, you are in the right place.

What to see in Murcia
 
  • Windmills:
All along the Eastern Mediterranean Coast there are a large number of windmills, used mostly to grind cereals. They are one of the main tourist destinations.
 
  • Mining landscapes:
The most famous mining town is La Unión, home of the most important International Flamenco Festival worldwide. La Unión is known because back in the day lots of people there worked in the copper and iron mines. Agrupa Vicenta, the flagship of Murcian mines, has been converted into a place of arts and music. Mazarrón, Águilas, Cehegin… are other Murcian towns with a mining tradition.
 
  • Waterwheels:
These are another example of Arab engineering during their time in the Kingdom of Murcia. Famous waterwheels such as La Ñora, Alcantarilla or Noria Grande in the Valley of Ricote (Abarán), have their original structure and are still used to raise water for irrigation purposes.
 
  • Lighthouses:
Murcia has 274 kilometers of Mediterranean coastline, with many lighthouses contributing to safe sailing in Murcian waters.
