Not far from the capital of the Murcia Region, Fortuna is famous for the abundance of hot springs. Water, scarce in this area, flows freely in Fortuna, giving rise to a number of fountains and thermal springs that were already popular in Roman times and which have today converted Fortuna into an important spa town.
Because the weather and climate is so favourable, Fortuna has become a popular tourist destination for sun lovers enjoying approximately 325 sunny days each year as well as a place for many expats to live on a permanent basis
Fortuna is a typical Spanish town, as yet unexploited, with peaceful streets and a white church with a curious tower. The history of the town goes back to Iberian settlements, the remains of which can still be seen in outlying districts such as Caprés, Castillejo or Cortao de las Peñas. The Arab domination is still visible in the Castillico de los Moros (Moors’ Castle). The town’s cultural heritage is enriched with the Baroque-style Parish Church of La Purísima, the Convent and the Town Hall, all constructed in an aesthetic modernist style. For country lovers, to the south of Fortuna, there is a large lake, enclosed in a nature preservation area and surrounded by woods, ideal for walking or fishing.
