Murcia Muralla Visitors Center

MURCIA MURALLA VISITORS CENTER

The Muralla de Murcia is a reference of first order in the tourist and cultural offer of the city.

Muralla de Murcia

 

The center hosts a section of the medieval walls of Murcia in which it is possible to appreciate the evolution that over the centuries experienced the urban defenses.
 
In these transformations and adaptations of the wall to the needs of the city is summarized the history of Murcia: its foundation in the s. IX, its development in the s. XII, the Castilian conquest in the mid-s. XIII, its frontier character during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and finally the disappearance of defensive needs after the union of the kingdoms of Castile and Aragon and the conquest of the Nasrid sultanate of Granada at the end of the s. XV, its decay and disuse in later centuries and its rehabilitation as an urban element in the late s. XX.

Muralla interior

 

The historical importance of the Wall of Santa Eulalia as well as the singularity of the architectural intervention show the respect to the archaeological remains that are in situ and that allow to relate with the spaces in which they were.

The Center is located on an open excavation in the Plaza de Santa Eulalia next to the Hermitage of San José. In this excavation, of about 110 m2, remains of the Arab wall of the s. XII, on which during the s. XV was built a new wall coinciding at this point with the access tower. This project places us in a first phase of action of the entire archaeological environment, which will be considered in the near future as new performances in other contiguous deposits, about 50 m2 total, and the Arab necropolis located in the same square about 25 meters Away. All these archaeological stations were connected in the origin, reason why the project contemplates the global action by phases of all the zone, proposing a communication through subterranean galleries.

Muralla

 

The Center consists of several rooms in which virtually daily life is recreated in medieval Murcia. Through a guided tour and through plasma screens, infographics and models the visitor can go back centuries back in time to know the evolution of the wall from the Islamic era to the Christian.

"La Luz" Visitors Center

'LA LUZ' VISITORS CENTRE

 

SURROUNDINGS
La Luz

 

The La Luz Visitors Centre is located in the heart of the El Valle Regional Park, just 7 kilometres from the city of Murcia.

In addition to being an incredible natural environment for recreation and leisure, the park is a green lung for the city and a place much loved by Murcians. It has a total size of approximately 16,724 hectares. In 1917, it was included in the National Register of Natural Spaces and enjoys the regional protection granted in 1992.

At present, this natural space has been proposed for inclusion into the future Natura 2000 network (the European Network of Natural Spaces). In addition, large areas of the park have been declared Special Protection Areas for Birds (ZEPA) and Sites of Community Interest (LIC), both designated protections at a European level.

 

THE BUILDING

With the construction and launch of the Visitors Centre, Murcia Town Council demonstrated its interest in bringing together sustainable development, nature conservation and public use.

 
The purpose of this centre, inaugurated on 21 December 2004, is to make use of the natural resources and heritage of the area to turn it into a first-class tourist destination.
The centre is situated in a modern and functional building of almost 1000 m2, and is fully integrated into the landscape thanks to the materials it is made of. Since the building is located in a place with such incredible views in every direction, it is designed externally as an observatory.

Inside, the building is designed to guide visitors through an indoor tour to show past and present features of interest in the area. The building is split into three floors:

  •  Ground floor. Exhibition space dedicated to different historical themes.
  • First floor. Audiovisual room and cafeteria.
  • Second floor. Panoramic terraces.

 

 

  • PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS

The protected space of El Valle-Sierra de Carrascoy and its natural resources and heritage can be viewed as a whole with a model made for this purpose. Visitors then move on to the exhibition space, based around three themes: “The Valley of the Iberians”, “Medieval Fortifications and Spirituality” and “Silk in Murcia”.

This spatial and chronological journey begins with the Iberian world, highlighting the antiquity of the human presence in this area. From there visitors move on to the spiritual world of hermitages, convents and sanctuaries that emerged in the caves and peaks of the area, and finishing in an era in which the area was frequented by families seeking a summer break.
