If you are still ambivalent, you can look into some of the things you can see and do in town in the following:

Raising proudly in the center town is the Murcia Cathedral, a 14th century Gothic structure and the only functioning cathedral in the Cartagena Diocese.

Another of the major attractions in town is the Real Casino de Murcia. It is an outstandingly beautiful casino/ museum that totally deserves your attention and interest. It is housed in an impressive 19th century mansion with a grand facade and a lavish interior. It is the seat of the Real Casino that was founded in 1847 and houses many cultural activities, as well as the private club.
