Averages for Murcia in February
February is an exciting month which can be summed up in one word: Carnival. Carnival is a party with parades, costume contests and dance performances that date back over 200 years.
Although Murcia is a lightly travelled tourist destination, it is in close proximity to many interesting areas that are worth a visit. Anyone visiting Murcia during this entire month will be able to locate a Carnival festival in a town very close by. Hint: Aguilas, which hosts its Carnival the week before Lent, is rumoured to have the most elaborate fiesta.
The wonderful weather of Murcia makes any time of year the perfect time to tour the city or the area at large. It is recommended to rent a car in order to experience the beautiful countryside, however some visitors have reported that the complicated system of one-way streets made driving difficult. It depends on which sites people want to see.
Driving in the more rural areas is a breathtaking experience, but there is plenty to see within the city afoot. One piece of advice: make this car/no car decision before you leave to avoid the hassle (and maybe disappointment) of trying to rent a car upon arrival.

February events in Murcia
Romería de San Blas de Santiago de la Ribera
3rd February 2015
Mar Menor in the south-east of the autonomous community of Murcia traditionally celebrates the Festival of San Blas. Some of the participants will be wearing the typical costume of the Murcian country side and fisherfolk of Santiago dela Ribera. Tradionally terracotta figures were placed above the bed of children in the family, in belief that they would keep throat infections at bay.
