For those who enjoy history, Lorca is an ideal day out (or even an overnight stopover). Lorca is located around an hour from Mar Menor, and boasts several interesting tourist attractions.
First on the list is the Fortress of the Sun, constructed during the long Moorish occupation of Al Andaluz (what is now Southern Spain).
Here, you can enter the “time machine” and travel back in time to 1480. Discover more of Spain´s rich and vivid history through the videos and the actors around the castle, who will tell you of life in those days.
