Terra Natura Murcia
Explore the wilds of both the African Savanna and the Iberian Peninsula at Terra Natura Murcia, a ‘zooimmersion’ park that is home to over 500 animals. You can see several endangered species, such as the white rhino, ring-tailed lemurs, and Masai giraffes, before learning about the animals and lunching at the onsite restaurant.
Since opening in 2007, Terra Natura Murcia has become one of the country’s most significant animal parks, home to everything from hippos to otters. Here, you can learn about conservation, enjoy a more immersive experience than at traditional zoos (by getting close to and being able to pet some of the animals), and admire birds of prey flight demonstrations. For an additional fee you can opt for a guided night-time safari.

What To Do in Murcia
Murcia is often overlooked in favor of nearby Málaga or Valencia, but there’s plenty to do in this university city. Make a day of it by visiting the Gothic cathedral and venturing into the surrounding orchards, then stop by the Mar Menor saltwater lagoon. During Holy Week, the city also boasts one of the most spectacular parades in Spain.
