Buy your house in Lorca


Here you can read why Lorca is the perfect home for your country house, cortijos or piece of land. Lorca, located on the southern slope of the Sierra del Cano mountain in the region of Murcia in south-east Spain. Declared a historic and artistic site in 1964, Lorca is known as the 'Baroque city' thanks to the important Baroque monuments in its historic centre. 


Visible from miles away, one of Spain’s largest castles, the medieval Castle of the Sun, dominates the city of Lorca. Two rectangular towers catch the eye first; the older Alphonsine Tower and the Espolon Tower are connected by defensive walls, which total more than 3,000 feet in length.

City and beach life


Lorca's dramatic nature also applies to its five miles of coastline. Forget the vast, golden beaches of Alicante and the Costa Blanca; the beaches between Cope Cape and Puntas de Calnegre form a regional park and are made up of cliffs, coves, and coastal trails. No construction is allowed, so you’ll only find the odd fishing village. The beaches aren’t easy to get to, but once there, you’ll enjoy nature pure.


The city and its nearness to its many mountain chains and areas of great natural beauty make Lorca a place to really have a good time. Culture, golf, nature and hiking, traditional fests, gastronomy, history, etc. It is truly impossible to summarise the ample leisure opportunities available at Lorca and surrounding areas.
