At Mil Palmeras beach (Alicante), a few kms from Region of Murcia coast, there is a restaurant and swimming pool that I recommend. This is the former Oasis. Same owner. I have many memories from this site.
A good place to enjoy a whole day.
National and international food. Also, grilled food.
By night, a good dinner with a beautiful surroundings, trees, grass, music. And after that, to have a drink.
It is believed that the origin of this cathedral, of which only ruins, dating from the first century BC.
The current appearance of the building is due to the reconstruction of the architect Victor Beltrí in 1902 in Romanesque style. During the Civil War, and because of the bombing, it was virtually destroyed, as we can see today. Inside the enclosure wall remains of the Roman theater and the upper stands and perimeter structures it is preserved. Also, in an underground crypt, you can admire a Roman mosaic from the first century BC found in this place in 1877.
This wall is called Carlos III because it was during the reign of this king that when construction was performed. It was built during the last third of the eighteenth century, and gradually stopped having military validity to the late nineteenth century. This was basically a series of extensive bastioned fronts, linked together, which flanked each other. It grew to 5 km long.

One of the best at Sky Festival was the Eagle Patrol (Patrulla Águila). Seven airplanes at same time doing the same acrobatics. Awesome!
Headquarter of Patrulla Águila is in San Javier, Region of Murcia.
Due to the climate of Region of Murcia, there is a permanent community of flamingos in the Regional Park of Salinas and Arenales of San Pedro del Pinatar, but in summer increases the number of flamingos by migrating from the south.

There is a good way to reach one of the best natural beaches at Region of Murcia: hiking. Only one kilometer between dunes, salt flats, acuatic birds as flamingos. The name of the beach: Torre Derribada at San Pedro del Pinatar.
