Murcia is a city founded in 831 by Abd-Al-Rahman II in a privileged location, in the center of the Segura River Valley. The importance of the city during the Moorish period is illustrated by its surrounding wall, some of the remains of which are still visible in different parts of the city, which was 15 m high and had 95 towers. This importance is also evident in the numerous archaeological finds, such as those of a palatial nature made in the Convent of Las Claras, today the Santa Clara Museum.

The Christian city has also left a deep mark on the urban physiognomy of Murcia.

Temples such as those of La Merced, San Miguel, Santa Ana, Las Claras, Santo Domingo, Santa Eulalia or San Juan de Dios, which combine their artistic architectures with an important pictorial and sculptural heritage, with works among which those made by Francisco Salzillo
