In July of 1857, was inaugurated the Great Organ. The Organ of Murcia had an impact at European level absolutely spectacular, as was a tremendous breakthrough in the world of technology and mechanics worldwide and was quite ahead of its time from the point of view of music (loudness and registrations), becoming the best romantic organ in Spain, a unique example in Europe and unattainable goal model for the rest of organs houses of the time.
The instrument, of a size not equaled or surpassed by any current body in Spain, holds 63 records, about 5,000 pipes and console with four keyboards and a keyboard feet. Everything is sheltered by an elegant Gothic style box (main facade) and eclectic (facade of the choir, in the picture), with a carved quality of great importance.

The Tuesday after the second Sunday of September is the massive pilgrimage of La Fuensanta, from Murcia to the Sanctuary of the "Fuente Santa (Santa Fountain)", in the Sierra of Saler, about five kilometers from the capital. This beautiful natural landscape can see from its height, the Fertile valley of Murcia, Orihuela and the coastal plain of Alicante.
At 7 am, after a low Mass, the Virgin is carried Fuensanta from the Cathedral to her shrine at Mount. On their way through the streets of the city, crowded with worshipers, the pilgrimage takes the form of procession, with devotees in long lines, authorities and clergy.
On January 17, 1694, after a long drought that threatened the harvest from the garden, lowered the image of the Virgin of Fuensanta for the first time to Murcia.
To worship, a chapel was built shortly before being named in 1731 as the new patron of the City and its Garden (orchard), the various miracles attributed regarding rainfall. Thus, the Fuensanta replaced the Virgen de la Arrixaca as patroness of the city.
