The narrow strip of land known as La Manga divides the Mediterranean from the Mat Menor lagoon. Many of these coastal locations enjoy some kind of protection as sites of special interest to naturalists, and interesting species of flora and fauna, such as the fartet, a small fish, and the Sabina Mora, a type of tree. The city of Murcia itself is well worth a visit for anyone enjoying a stay in Costa Cálida holiday rentals. Founded over 800 years ago as part of Cordoba, the city's architecture still bears witness to the Arab influence on this part of Spain. Althought the Cathedral of Santa Maria is the town's main architectural landmark, hints of the Muslim era can be seen in buildings all over the town, especially the Castle of Motegudo. Murcia was also home to the artist Ramon Gaya, and a museum dedicated to his life and work can be found on Casa Palarea.
