Today starts with a tour of one of the Jumilla Wine Route wineries, featured in the Wine Routes of Spain Product Club.

After the wine tasting, the next place to visit is the Santa Ana Monastery, founded in 1573. Inside there is a marvellous sculpture of 'Christ tied to the column' by Francisco Salzillo.

Once you have finished your tour of the monastery, it will be time for lunch at one of the Jumilla Wine Route restaurants, where you can sample the area's exquisite traditional cuisine.

After lunch, your wine tasting itinerary continues at another of the wineries on the Jumilla Wine Route, where you can recap on what you learned during the first wine tasting.

Next, you can visit another of the town's most outstanding relics: El Casón, the best-preserved late Roman monument in Europe.

You can find out more about the town's history, wandering around the Plaza de Arriba. Here you can visit the Council Palace, the only example of Renaissance civil architecture in the Region of Murcia, which was refurbished in 1997 to 1999 and subsequently reopened as the 'Jerónimo Molina' Municipal Archaeological Museum.

Very nearby, the early 17th Century San José Chapel and the old Inn, now the People's University, are also worth a visit.

Afterwards, it is on to the Main Parish Church of Santiago, one of the great symbols of the city and a National Monument since 1931.

The next stop is the Town Hall, built in 1835 over the old 'Santi Spiritu' hospital.

Continue on to the El Salvador Church, built in the 18th Century on the site of the old Nuestra Señora del Loreto chapel.

Leaving the church behind, head on to the Vico Theatre, named in honour of actor Antonio Vico and similar in design to the Romea Theatre in Murcia.

The tour finishes with a walk in the Rey Don Pedro Garden, where you can admire some of its centuries-old pine trees.
