There you will find not only local products, such as the local pastries, fresh Mediterranean fruit and vegetables or something authentically Spanish like empanadillas. These street markets and flea markets are also there for you to get lost in; to discover bargains in used or second-hand objects; to be enticed by a multitude of vintage items that are now difficult to find.

Las Charcas in San Pedro del Pinatar (Healing Mud baths in nature)

The famous mud from the Mar Menor has made Murcia an important destination for health and beauty tourism. Nevertheless, this region in southeastern Spain also has a wealth of mineral-rich, medicinal waters in inland areas. In the town of Archena, 25 kilometers from the city of Murcia, you will find a good example. Its spa resort boasts having been Spain's most popular thermal center at the end of the 19th century; it continues to be a renowned complex to this day.

It is set in the fertile Ricote Valley, an area of countryside irrigated by the Segura River, with interesting contrasts of landscape: palm groves, orange, and a variety of fruit trees are flanked by arid-looking mountains. The result is a unique, peaceful setting that is ideal for rest and relaxation. Transfers Included in your package.
