Where is Moratalla?
Moratalla is in the North-west of the Region of Murcia, accessed via the Autovia del noroeste from Murcia to Caravaca de la Cruz. On its North and western borders it joins Albacete, to the east is Calasparra, and to the South, Caravaca de la Cruz and Cehegín.
Moratalla is the most North-westerly municipality in the Region of Murcia and is renowned for its outstanding natural scenery, pine forests and open unspoilt beauty.
It also houses the most important prehistoric rock paintings within the region, with sites such as Cañaica del Calar, Fuente del Sabuco, Molino de Capel, Andragulla, La Risca and El Molino containing more than 50% of the Arte rupestre of the Region of Murcia. Information about these can be found in the Casa de Cristo in the interpretation centre for rock art.
Throughout its 10,000 year history, Moratalla has been occupied by a series of cultures, its abundant water and mountainous aspect offering water and shelter for prehistoric hunters throughout pre-history to the era of the Iberians when several settlements were known to exist. The Romans farmed this area, villas discovered at Ulea, Los Granadicos, Andrevia and Víllora, and mined sulphur from the site of the old volcano of Salmerón, one of their most important remains being a bridge, the Puente de Hellín crossing the River Alhárabe.
The Moorish invaders who followed the Romans built castles and watchtowers in the municipality and as the Moors were followed by the Christian armies of the Reconquist the castle of Moratalla and its tower, the Torre del Homenaje which dominates the skyline of the town today took its current form and gave the town the structure it has today.
Moratalla has an atmospheric and complete old quarter, winding streets clustered around the foot of the castle, Casas Señoriales, the noble homes of local landowners and baroque churches of the Convento de San Francisco and the Iglesia de la Asunción creating an intimate, small town atmosphere
Its principal economic activity is agriculture, producing almonds, olives, wheat and irrigated soft fruit crops including apricots and cherries, although rural tourism is also an important activity, with a well-supported campsite and many rural houses servicing those who enjoy walking and outdoor pursuits in the area.

The most important Fiestas are Semana Santa, which includes the Fiesta del Tambor, in which the tamboristas drum in the streets on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, wearing distinctive multi-coloured robes and capirotes, and the Fiesta del Santísimo Cristo del Rayo, which includes several days of encierros, or bullrunning.
