Fodor's Review

Murcia's cathedral is a masterpiece of eclectic architecture. Begun in the 14th century, the cathedral received its magnificent facade—considered one of Spain's fullest expressions of the Churrigueresque style—as late as 1737. The 19th-century English traveler Richard Ford described it as "rising in compartments, like a drawn-out telescope." The 15th century brought the Gothic Door of the Apostles and, inside, the splendid chapel of Los Vélez, with a beautiful, star-shaped

stone vault. Carvings by the 18th-century Murcian sculptor Francisco Salzillo were added later. The bell tower, built between 1521 and 1792, rises 95 meters (313 feet).
