Los Alcazares 3 Beds Garden Apartment next to the shores of the Mar Menor, offers us seven kilometres of coastline from Los Narejos to Punta Brava and dedicates a large part of its economic activity to the industry of services and tourism. The name of the municipality comes from the Arabic word ?Al Kazar?, which means palace or ?house of nobles?, buildings that were constructed by the Arabs for their holidays and relaxation in this place. Furthermore, the Moors discovered the excellent properties of the Mar Menor water, which they enjoy in the ancient Roman baths located here. With the Christian repopulation, Los Alcazares became to be truly important as a port for fishing and trade, giving to this town an excellent strategic position. At the beginning of the 20th Century, the inhabitants of La Huerta Region of Murcia began to visit this town in August to take the famous ?novenaries? (a series of nine baths). On the shore, there is a silent witness to the ?explosion? of this municipality: the Hotel-Spa La Encarnación, which was built in 1904 and which maintains the idiosyncrasies of the beginnings of the last century.The main activity in Los Alcazares is the tourism, the hotel of La Encarnación the most historic on the shores of the Mar Menor, the largest European salt water lake. The population is highly increased in summer with holidaymakers, attracted by kilometres of soft sands, the warm and safe shallow waters and the opportunities to enjoy the superb watersports facilities. The Mar Menor is renown for its safe sailing and afternoon thermal winds, kitesurfers and windsurfers do some water sports runing under the clean sea from the coast to the seaside, and the apprentices enjoy the safety of an enclosed lagoon, for a while another more experienced sailors can head out into the Mediterranean or charter yachts for explore along the Murcian coastline.
Los Alcazares is also the location of the only surviving Balneario which is still in use today as a restaurant, a vestige from the days when bathers wished to maintain a level of decorum by descending into the waters from the privacy of a bathing hut, rather than baring all on the beach. This part of the beach is also the focal point for one of the most important gastronomic traditions of the region: the preparation of the intensely fish called caldero, the staple diet of the fishing population who they fish from these shores before the onset of tourism.
Los Alcazares has been the destination of Murcians from the capital for centuries, and celebrates the annual migration of the huertanos with its vibrant and colourful Semana de la Huerta y El Mar, filling the town with the scent of murcian tapas, the colourful costumes of folk dancers and a selection of artesan crafts from across the Region.
Los Alcazares also hosts one of the best mediaeval markets in the region, when it celebrates its Berber fiestas, commemorating the raids by Berber Pirates which were such a feature of it?s history during the 16th and 17th centuries.
The town is also home to an established ex-pat community, with a wealth of social activities and organisations for the English speaking population, and offers residential properties in established urban locations, rather than on newer and more isolated urbanisations.
Los Alcazares is in the east of the Region of Murcia on the shore of the Mar Menor, very close to the airport of San Javier and about half an hour?s drive from the new International Airport at Corvera, with good connections along the Mar Menor to arterial links throughout the Region.
