We continued this hunting in Sierra Nevada Ibex and the sightseeing with Grand Slam. Tina, always accompanied by our guide of Iberhunting Mercedes, and Kelley, had the opportunity to discover the city of Lorca. A place known as the “Baroque city” thanks to the important Baroque monuments in its historic centre. Our first visit was the castle, where we toured all its history in places like its “Alfonsina tower” or the “Synagogue”. Because, excavations in the medieval Lorca castle revealed that this place housed the city’s Jewish quarter.
During the afternoon, it was the turn to visit Lorca center. First, The church of St.Patick, placed under the patronage of Saint Patrick (patron saint of Ireland) in remembrance and commemoration of the victory achieved in the Battle of the Alporchones, fought by the people of Lorca against the Muslims on March 17, 1452. Second, we visited the “Palacete Huerto Ruano” where the interior of the building is spectacular and the exterior is decorated with beautiful gardens, water fountains and sculptures. Finally, we finish this sightseeing in Lorca with the “tapas” in a restaurant with a traditional spanish gastronomy, but with jewels of the Murcian and Spanish territory.
And we finish the great area of shopping in Lorca.
