The city of Murcia is one of the seven most populated cities in Spain
The city of Murcia is located in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is the capital of the Autonomous Community of the same name which, with a surface area of 11,317 square kilometres, is the largest of the single-province autonomous communities in Spain, and is also one of the seven most populated cities in the country.
Its metropolitan area covers 881 square kilometres. It is made up of the city centre, with a central core of 3 kilometres, the old quarter with a diameter of 1.5 kilometres and the 55 districts administratively dependent on the Murcia City Council, which include half of the population of the municipality. Territorial diversity is, therefore, one of the hallmarks of Murcia's identity.
Geographically, it is divided into two very different areas: the Huerta, which extends along the banks of the Segura river, and the Campo, with arid lands located to the N/W, N/E and South of the municipality. The average altitude above sea level is around forty-three metres.
