ABOUT

Located next to the shores of the Mar Menor, it offers seven kilometres of coastline from Los Narejos to Punta Brava and dedicates a large part of its economic activity to the industry of services and tourism.

HERITAGE

A comienzos del s. XX, los habitantes de la huerta murciana comienzan a acudir a esta localidad en el mes de agosto para tomar los famosos novenarios (serie de nueve baños). A orillas de sus aguas se encuentra un mudo testigo de la "explosión" de este municipio, el Hotel-Balneario La Encarnación, construido en 1904 y que guarda la idiosincrasia de principios del siglo pasado.

La visita continúa con el Museo Aeronáutico, en el que se expone toda la documentación, fotografías y material de la historia de la base de los Alcázares desde sus orígenes como aeródromo en el año 1915 hasta la actualidad.

En sus proximidades se encuentra la Torre medieval del Rame, enclavada en un paisaje cuajado de palmeras, que con algunos añadidos del s.XVI, mantiene su estructura original.

HISTORY

The name of the municipality comes from the Arabic word 'Al Kazar', which means palace or 'house of nobles', buildings that were constructed by the Arabs for their holidays and relaxation in this place. Furthermore, the Moors discovered the excellent properties of the water of the Mar Menor, which they enjoyed in the ancient Roman baths that were located there and which they reused. With the Christian repopulation, Los Alcázares became truly important as a port for fishing and trade, given its excellent strategic position.

At the beginning of the 20th Century, the inhabitants of La Huerta Region of Murcia began to visit this town in August to take the famous 'novenaries' (a series of nine baths). On the shore, there is a silent witness to the 'explosion' of this municipality: the Hotel-Spa La Encarnación, which was built in 1904 and which maintains the idiosyncrasies of the beginnings of the last century.

FESTIVITIES

Un buen momento para visitar esta localidad es durante la Semana Internacional de la Huerta y el Mar, una semana dedicada enteramente al folklore y que está declarada de Interés Turístico Regional.
