Puerto Lumbreras – Murcia
The municipality of Puerto Lumbreras, which occupies 338 square kilometres, lies in the south west of the region of Murcia on the border with Andalucía. It is home to approximately 15,000 people, the majority of whom live in the town itself, and its location on the main route between Murcia and the Andalucían cities of Granada and Seville has made it a logical stopping point for travellers for many centuries.
These days Puerto Lumbreras is known for its ceramics and other craftwork – the craft museum is well worth a visit and it’s not hard to pick up gifts and souvenirs – but visitors to the town are also attracted by the Moorish castle which stands on the hill behind it and the old town centre, which includes the Casa de en Medio, the church dedicated to Nuestra Señora del Rosario, the Town Hall in the Plaza de la Constitución and various other buildings which illustrate the history and traditions of this former frontier settlement.
Along with Lorca and Águilas, Puerto Lumbreras forms part of the Alto Guadalentín area of Murcia, and shares with these two neighbours a landscape which alternates between mountains such as the Cabezo de la Jara (1,242 metres) and the fertile lowlands of the Guadalentín valley: these predominate in the El Esparragal and Puerto Adentro districts, and provide land for the cultivation of crops including lettuces, melons and flowers.
The largest town in Spain by area, Lorca stretches across an entire valley and its municipal district reaches the coast. The attraction of Lorca lies in its history and archaeology, present in the character of its streets, its living crafts (textiles, woodwork, ceramics) its different offerings for festivals and cultural events. Lorca was officially declared an “historical and artistic” treasure in 1964.
A hilltop castle presides over the town, this is the Sun Fortress of Lorca which is a former frontier town dating back to the 13th century when Spain was dominated by the Moors and Lorca was a defensive town whose primary function was the defence of the Arabic possessions. The castle has recently been restored to part of its former glory and represents a significant economic resource for the people of Lorca.
The town has numerous historical buildings including churches, Roman villas, palaces and also artistic treasures. Lorca is well known for its enthusiastic and lavish fiestas. Lorca is well connected with a coach station, a rail station and the main N340 motorway which runs next to the town.
Lorca is 120km from Alicante airport, 150km from Almeria airport and 60km from Murcia’s airport at San Javier.
