Just 40 km away from Mediterranean beaches, Murcia extends along the valley of Segura river. Dur. 3h - Difficulty: Low. From Murcia center itself, you go back to the dense net of irrigation canals and channels until getting to Contraparada, which is a place all channels that water the Orchard are born. The walk for this reservoir over Segura River, whose origin is Roman, will serve in order to understand its working and evolution. The way back to Murcia will be the chance to peacefully walk by the quiet « carriles », small local roads that plough through the Orchards, among bitter oranges, lemon trees and vegetables. Without losing sight of the Murcia cathedral tower, the cycle lane in the river will take us to the gates of the old quarter.
