Murcia. If you’re looking to get out and about around Spain a little more, nearby Murcia is only a short drive away, and is the 7th biggest city in the country. It’s got a few festivals too (the Orchard Parade, the Burial of the Sardine, and the Three Cultures International Festival), so it might be worth seeing if any of these overlap with your trip. It’s also got a casino and some nightclubs, so head here for a bigger night out.
Alicante. Further away that Murcia, but if you’re flying in or out of here it’s worth scheduling a bit of time to see more of the city. There’s cathedrals, castles and architecture, as well as a few festivals; and a vibrant nightlife around El Barrio.
