Fly to Murcia from Anglesey Airport
Now you can fly to Murcia from Anglesey, including a changeover at Cardiff International Airport.
With the opening of Anglesey Airport at RAF Valley, it is now possible to plan to fly to Murcia from Anglesey.
This is a fine opportunity to visit an area rich in history on the Costa Calida of south east Spain.
Murcia, with a greater city region of almost half a million people, nestles in a plain near the Segura and Sangonera rivers. A stay here would give you the best of both worlds.
Surrounded by fine, scenic hills and mountains steeped in ancient monuments and archeological sites, and yet close by the sea and sandy beaches to the east.
This region has links going back to the Phoenicians and later the Greeks, who traded extensively and established colonies here. In the great days of Carthage, the coastal port of Cartagena was an important hub which led to further settlement inland.

The Romans also settled here and following the decline of her empire, with the passage of time the Moorish influence eventually took hold.
In the city itself, you could visit the baroque-style museum on sculpture, the Sazillo Museum, after the famous 18th century sculptor.
If you have an interest in wine, the Murcia region has three appellations, namely Yecla, Bullas and Jumilla. The very hot summers, freezing conditions in winter and limestone base are perfect for growing these wines.
And if you’re a golf fan, why not head for La Manga Club, or if you want the feel of sand between your toes, get over to beaches such as Puerto de Mazarron, La Puntica and Calabardina.
Perhaps you have friends who have retired and now live in the Murcia area or you are thinking of buying a holiday home in the area.
