Catedral de Santa María information
Murcia’s cathedral was built in 1394 on the site of a mosque. The initial Gothic architecture was given a playful baroque facelift in 1748, with a stunning facade facing on to Plaza Belluga. The 15th-century Capilla de los Vélez is a highlight; the chapel’s flutes and curls resemble icing. The Museo de la Catedral displays religious artefacts, but is most striking for the excavations on display: the remains of an 11th-century Moorish dwelling and of a small mezquita (mosque), visible below a glass walkway.
