Head to the pedestrianised streets of Murcia’s old centre and take a look at its ornate 14th-century cathedral. Inside, the Cathedral Museum houses religious objects and archaeological finds from the site of the cathedral. Also worth a look is the Museo de Bellas Artes de Murcia, a museum dedicated to Spanish art.
