Alhama de Murcia
Alhama de Murcia lies in the heart of the Guadalentin Valley, the municipality bordering with Murcia, Fuente Álamo, Mazarrón, Totana, Librilla and Mula, giving it important arterial connections both throughout the Region of Murcia and into neighbouring provinces.
It is well connected by rail and motorways and is close to the new Corvera International Airport, as well as 35 km of coastal beaches at Mazarrón, factors which have contributed to its selection as the projected location for the Paramount Murcia Theme Park and Lifestyle Center.
This has also attracted residential tourism initiatives, including the Condado de Alhama Urbanisation and Golf Course.
Its flat plains give it an important agricultural industry, and the El Pozo plant is the region’s largest employer, as part of an International Group with diverse interests in food products and construction.
The name Alhama relates to the hot thermal waters which flowed until the 1930’s and attracted both the Romans and the Moors to build thermal baths, which have today been converted into the town’s Archaeological Museum, Los Baños.
Alhama also has a well preserved Pósito, a municipal grain store, a castle, currently undergoing restoration and the Iglesia de san Lázaro.
As well as the flat areas of Alhama which produce grapes, citrus products and irrigated crops, the municipality of Alhama has two important Sierras within it’s borders, forming part of the Sierra de Carrascoy and the Sierra Espuña. The Sierra Espuña is an important tourist
attraction for Alhama, offering hectares of shaded woodland, walking routes and attractive pedanías, all of which add to its rural tourism offering.
The town also has a busy and varied cultural programme, including the Romería of the Candelaria in February, Los Mayos, which celebrates the arrival of Spring in May, and an important Semana Santacelebration, as well as a busy cultural programme in the main town and outlying pedanías.
