The Mula valley also embraces the town of Pliego, which lies between the Espuña and Ricote ranges. The river flows past the town and there are natural springs irrigating the wide plain, which affords the visitor the pleasant surprise of the blend of pinewood and fruit tree aromas.
Pliego was an important centre during the Argar period and has important archeological remains, such as that of Almolaya at the foot of Sierra Espuña. It also has Roman remains and was further developed during the Muslim era, which also gave rise to the village of La Mota with its 12th-century fortress still conserving 3 towers and the battlements of part of the town wall.
The locality still holds something of the flavour of those times with steep narrow streets, climbing plants clambering over whitewashed walls and green-hued roofs and the lofty figures of date palms and fruit ripening in the sun. After the acquisition of the area by the Order of St James in the 14th century other monuments were built, such as the Casa de la Tercia, and the Baroque-style Ermita de la Virgen de los Remedios.
As a result of its intense historical tradition, its strategic location as a Mediterranean enclave and its transitional character as a border territory mid-way between the Meseta and Andalusia, the Murcia Region retains innumerable vestiges of the past, making it an ideal meeting-point where History and tradition have been instilled with new life and placed at the visitor’s disposal.
Situated in its fertile valley some 30 miles from Murcia the town of Mula offers the visitor aged palaces and monuments displaying the wealth that the Marquis de los Vélez invested in safeguarding his position against the local populace when he erected his imposing castle, a magnificent 16th-century construction dominating the plain below and which gives the impression of having simply emerged from the very rocky outcrop on which it perches.
The town itself has a great deal of charm spreading out as it does from around the Plaza Mayor, in which the church of San Miguel is of note.
Among the steep and winding lanes of the old quarter, in the upper part of the town is the church of Santo Domingo, with its renaissance façade and Baroque interior, and also one of the region’s finest examples of monastic architecture , the Real Monasterio de la Encarnación.
Evidence of human presence in Mula goes back to the Neolithic with finds from the Argar period and Iberian artefacts, now housed in the Museum of Iberian Art
