In the U.S., today is the Black Friday. In Murcia, malls are already decorated for starting Christmas time, or rather, to start the season over year consumption. So we will start seeing Christmas gifts.

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species. Therefore, at the Museum of Science and Water in Murcia (Museo de la Ciencia y el Agua) is an exhibition about the evolution of species, showing the work of Darwin and de la Espada. De la Espada was a naturalist born in Cartagena (Murcia). He was born the same year that Darwin left the Beagle headed for his great discovery. In 1862 he was elected to the Scientific Committee of the Pacific, the largest overseas dispatch of the Elizabethan Spain. The Commission was established with the aim of collecting South American material of zoological, botanical, geological and anthropological bound for the Natural Science Museum and the Botanical Garden of Madrid. During the expedition, which lasted three years, Jimenez de la Espada took over the collection of mammals, birds and reptiles. In various remittances made, sent for the first time to Europe several copies of American fauna to try their acclimatization, as the hare in Patagonia, the guanaco, the black-necked swan, the condor, and so on. These remittances earned him a reward of Société Impériale Zoologique d'Acclimatation that at the meeting of 23 March 1866, it awarded a first class medal in the division of mammals.

When I made the photo I didn't see that it was out of focus. This is the Gate of the Garden of the Bombs in the gardens of El Malecon.
The entryway precedes a rural recreational palace whose name comes from the battle which took place nearby on September 4, 1706, leading of the Borbon triumph in the war of Succesion. The skirmish was known as the battle of the Huerto de las Bombas because of the bombs let off during the fighting. It was the first Marquis of Torre Pacheco who first adquired Huerto de las Bombas. The main entrance, which is exhibited, has two Solomonic pillars with the architrave displaying the noble coat of arms of the first Marquis of Torre Pacheco whose quarters bear the arms of Fontes and Aviles, Carrillo and Marin, supported by lions rampant and huge and peaceful savages.

This poster is pretty funny. It reads: "Market on Sunday in the Massacre of Santomera". La Matanza is a village in the murcian municipality of Santomera, where every Sunday is celebrated a traditional market (fruits, vegetables, clothing).
The name of La Matanza comes from the Middle Ages, during the reconquest of Spain. In this area there were numerous battles between Moors and Christians.

This photo is from the outside of the Junterones Chapel in the Cathedral of Murcia.
"The best Renaissance chapel burial of Murcia. It was promoted by Don Gil Rodriguez de Junterón, a leading figure in the court of Julius II. Plant is oblong and is a unique set of novelty and of exceptional quality, which merges architecture and sculpture. It should be noted that the magnificent high relief, representing the glory, rises above the altarpiece of the Adoration of the Magi, and the figures of Isaiah, John the Baptist and the twelve Sibyls in a mixture of religious and pagan, so characteristic of the Renaissance".

I have chosen this door. This gate is located at the Museum of Fine Arts of Murcia (Museo de Bellas Artes de Murcia). It is a door that was part of the facade of the Palace Silk Contrast (17th century). Now is the doorway to one of the temporary halls of the museum and the pavilion is also documentation room and library.
