Mercia, or Murcia as it is known in Spain, is located southeast of Spain on the Mediterranean Coast close to the Segura River and also the Mar Menor. The city has Roman origins and was developed as a major urban town during the Middle Age. The ancient Kingdom of Murcia was also part of the Crown of Castile and because of this offers an important historical and cultural heritage. The name of the city has an Arab origin, meaning "place of myrtle”. If you have never been here before, we recommend you to choose one of our yachts and spend your holiday in the Med, why not soak in the sun onboard the stunning Sunseeker yacht and visit the nearby island of Ibiza.
