Its urban centre was declared a Town of Historical and Artistic Interest in 1964. The abundance of historical evidence which remains from the time of the Moors and Christians,

has made Lorca one of the most important historical centers in the whole of Eastern Spain Its castle, with its imposing appearance, is being converted into a theme area to be known as The Fortress of the Sun, where the visitor will be able to live out “an experience through the periods of History”.
