Murcia (37°59'N, 1°8'W) is a city and municipality on the river Segura in southeastern Spain and the capital
of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia. Population: 409,810 (2005); 563,272 including the
metropolitan area (urban area plus satellite towns), ranking as the 12th-largest metropolitan area of Spain.
Murcia is built nearly in the centre of a low-lying fertile plain, known as the huerta or market garden of Murcia,
which includes the valleys of the Segura and its right-hand tributary the Guadalentín or river Sangonera,
and is surrounded by mountains. Despite the proximity of the sea, the climate is subject to great variations:
the summer heat is severe, while frosts are occasionally experienced in the capital during the winter.
Murcia-San Javier Airport (MJV) is located on the edge of the Mar Menor close to the towns of San Javier
and Santiago de la Ribera, 45 km southeast of Murcia, about 30 minutes by car.
The airport at Alicante is frequently used by travellers to Murcia also.
