Europe Trip – Spain – Murcia, Spain smallest province

MURCIA PICASA PHOTO ALBUM (32 photos)

It took us less than a week to cross through one of the smallest provinces of Spain. As we wanted to make our way north, we followed the coastline of one of the least visited regions. The coastal roads were often spectacular with lots of places to pull out and look out over the almost desert like landscape. We stopped in the Bolnuevo, where the Gredos de Bolnuevo are a bunch of surreal sandstone-sculptured rocks.

Next we headed to Cartagena, the regions capital with countless Modernista buildings with swirly decorations and pastel colours. The rest of the town however is in a sad state of decay and neglect, no wonder there are no hords of tourist visiting it.

Finally we spent some relaxing time on the Costa Cálida – the Hot Coast – around the Mar Menor, a 170 km² saltwater lagoon. At Lo Pagan, the mellow resort at its northern end, were the Salinas de San Pedro, huge salt pans where in winter time thousands of flamingoes come to spend some time.

We are heading to the more touristy Costa Blanca in the Valencia region.
