Murcia is the principal city of the Murcia region and serves up some of the best food in Spain. Founded by the Moors in the 9th century on the banks of the Rio Segura, Murcia was extensively rebuilt in the 18th century and is famed for its architectural artistry, featuring a diversity of architecture styles from Gothic to Baroque. Similar to Valencia, it is famous for its huerta - a surrounding zone of market gardens which supply the city's restaurants with fresh produce and drive a budding tapas scene.
