Murcia, with almost 440,000 inhabitants, is the capital of the Region of Murcia. The city was founded by Abderramán II in 825 under the name of Madina Mursiya.
Famous worldwide for its incredible agriculture, it was nicknamed "the orchard of Europe". Now, the tertiary sector is gaining strength. The West Industrial Estate, shared between the municipalities of Murcia and Alcantarilla, is one of the largest in Spain.

The El Carmen train station provides long and medium distance services. For example, you can travel from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia or Alicante.
If you prefer to go by bus, the capital of Murcia is connected with most of the main Spanish cities and with other European and North African countries. Eurolines, Linebús and Alsa-Sala are the three companies that operate these international trips.
By car, the main routes are from Madrid on the A-30 and Valencia and Andalusia on the A-7.

In Furauto we have offices in the city of Murcia itself, at the airport, in Lorca and Cartagena. Do not forget that with our One Way service you can select the pick up and drop off offices of your vehicle you want even if they are not in the same province or Autonomous Community.
There are no toll roads in or out of Murcia. However, you may come across some on your trip. For example, the AP-7 runs along the coast of Murcia and passes through cities such as San Javier or Cartagena.
Parking your rental car in Murcia can be a problem depending on the area where you want to leave your vehicle. Our recommendation is to park your car in a public or private parking lot. This way you will save time, turns and problems.
Many streets here are blue zone. That is to say, you have to pay to leave your car and you must renew the ticket every certain time (normally every two hours). This can be a big hassle if you want to visit the city, as you won't be able to leave your car for long.
However, with patience, you may be able to find free parking on the street. The area around the train station or the Malecon usually has parking available. Anyway, before starting your trip, take a look at the city map to avoid wasting too much time.
