On our way to Valencia we will stop in Murcia where you will have some free time. The city of Murcia was founded by the Arabs during the 1st century. Since then, it has been a crossroads for different civilizations and core of the Mediterranean as it occupies an important location on the Rio Segura. The impressive Basilica (Cathedral), which sits opposite the modern Tourist Office, makes a great starting point right in the heart of the city.
From here, explore the colorful, lively, little plazas that nestle in between the narrow streets. Murcia has an overwhelming array of museums, art galleries and centres and beautiful historic buildings, so if it is culture that you crave you will certainly enjoy your time here.
This evening will be a Paella Cooking Demonstration and dinner. The best place to learn how to prepare a Paella is the city where this delicious dish originates from, namely Valencia. During this paella cooking class, you will learn how to prepare traditional paella Valenciana.
