CARTAGENA & MURCIA’S FESTIVITIES

The end of the long hot summer brings back activity to the main cities in the Region. During its  first fortnight, Murcia is home for the so called September Fair, while the big Festivities in Cartagena are held during the second half of that same month. The Capital City pays homage to its founders, muslim invaders from Africa, and to its local enemies, spanish Christians, a medieval story you will be told in our Moors & Christians Tour, prior to the parade gathering both sides along the street later in that day’s evening . Cartagena, in turn, revisits ancient history reenacting the foundation of the city by Carthaginian settlers and its further conquest by Roman armies in the late 3rd century b.C. Our Carthaginians and Romans Tour will allow you to have a first-hand ‘ancient’ experience, as it will take you through the main sites related to that fighting story, before dropping you right by the beginning of  the Great Parade of Carthaginian Troops and Roman Legions.

We usually offer 3 different tours during the festivities, in all of them our customers are taken to the interior of the churches, where floats for that evening’s parade are being embellished during  the whole day long; entering there actually means being transported to a different world with plenty of activity, artistry and devotion. Two of the tours are run in Cartagena during the afternoons of Easter Wednesday and Good Friday, while the remaining one takes place in Murcia City the day in-between, Maundy Thursday.

HARVEST WINE TOURS

When the summer heat begins to grow weak, it’s time for harvest season to get started in the regional Wine Designations of Origin. September is the month to do so in Jumilla wine growing area, and in our special Jumilla Wine Harvest Tour, you will be given the chance of performing a rather amusing wine making related activity: grape treading in wooden barrels, for you to experience the traditional way of obtaining the precious juice from that fruit. Treading will be followed by a tasting with a countryside lunch. By October, our focus moves to the northwest area in the Region, to Bullas, where, instead of treading over them, our Bullas Wine Harvest Tour offers you the opportunity of eating them, after picking the grapes with your own hands directly from the vines where they are being grown: you will be sampling not only Monastrell (main variety in the area), also Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet, provided they are available. All this, followed by a proper tasting with an aperitif including local specialties.
