Mysteries and Legends Tour of Murcia
Josefa Gómez ran a modest hostel called "La Perla" with her husband. Everything was going well until her husband became infatuated with a maid who was only 13 years old, and then she decided to poison him. The woman was condemned to die on the gallows near the Old Bridge (Puente Viejo) in Murcia, the first stop on our tour. But the story doesn't end there. Far from it. The death sentence significantly altered the city for various reasons that we will reveal during the tour.
Leaving behind the Puente Viejo over the Segura river, we will head to the Cathedral Square in Murcia. Here, you will discover how wine, an elderly bell-ringer of Murcia Cathedral, and even the devil himself, are involved in a famous saying they have here. You will also encounter spooky tunnels where you will hear some terrifying true stories.
The enchanted mansion on Rambla Street is the setting of our next story. The main character of the story here is the famous Spanish diplomat and noble Diego de Saavedra Fajardo. You will learn why his former residence is also known as "La casa del duende" (The house of the elf).
We will conclude the tour in front of the Romea Theatre over which looms an ancient prophecy. Proof of this are the two fires it has suffered during its history. And, according to an old curse, a new disaster is looming on the horizon...
