Show Notes

Our second guest on The Ambassadors for Spain series is Irish Expat Brendan Dwyer who lives in Murcia and works as GM in the 5 star award winning La Finca Resort in Alicante, Spain.  Brendan has worked for over 20 years in some of the most iconic hotels and brands including Vice President Global of Sales EMEA for Hyatt Hotels.  Brendan really captures the essence of Murcia in this week's podcast and he shares his top tips and the insiders guide to discovering this wonderful region.   Murcia is known as the garden of Europe, producing first-rate fresh produce all year round. It's a cooking enthusiast's dream,  as every good cook knows, you just can't go wrong with top-quality ingredients.    Murcia has some of the most beautiful scenery in Spain - with the placid, welcoming waters of Mar Menor,  a lagoon cut off from the Mediterranean by the lido-style sandbank of La Manga,  hugging the rugged cliffs and coves of Calblanque, with its secluded beaches.  You can happily lose yourself in the meandering streets of wonderful historic towns like Cartagena and Lorca.  The glories of Murcia city grow on you as pedestrian-only, shop-lined lanes lead into one enticing café-lined square after another, each with its own architectural gems, whether it's the imposing 15th-century cathedral or the impressively ornate Church of San Juan de Dios.  #VisitSpain #RegiónDeMurcia @murciaturistica
