Visit Sucina - Best of Sucina

Sucina is a village in Murcia six to eight kilometres from San Javier and near the airport. New houses and resorts are under construction and will remain so for at least another five years. The centre consists of a church called ‘Nuestra Señora del Rosario' and has recently experienced some physical renovation, due to its age. On one side of the church is a bank, whilst on the other side, there is a restaurant. Two roads up from the church, along a row of tiny, terraced houses dating back to the 18th century, is the local ‘Panaderia,’ otherwise known as the bakery. ‘Pasteles’ or cakes, are made here too. These are national treasures only to be scoffed as they hold a vital part of Spanish tradition on birthdays, saints' days, and Sundays. Around the 16th or 17th century, Murcia’s countryside began to populate and grow, thus Sucina’s appointment being known as ‘El Pozo de Sucina,’ translated as ‘Sucina’s Well’ and also known as Cañada de Sucina - Sucina’s canyons. At the awakening of the 18th century during Murcia’s agricultural administrative reign, Sucina was a dependant town within Murcia’s jurisdiction. Shortly thereafter, a local parish in Sucina was formed in 1744 by Don Balthazar Artega y Gamba, with the parish represented by a priest from La Orden de Los Clérigos Menores (The order of the young clergy), called Don Juan Matheo. In 1768, 919 parishioners were recorded in attendance. At the dawn of the 19th century, between the period of 1820-1823, Sucina’s Ayuntamiento was erected. Around this era, construction was under way for the habitants of the town, whereby 50 terraced houses were built including 400 semi-detached homes, purely for the town's labourers. The land in these parts is rather dry with no river or lake to be discovered within its vicinity. Therefore, the only form of re-hydration for the earth is rainwater. Produce, such as almonds, olives, wheat, artichokes, green beans, melons, lemons and tomatoes are grown here and exported. These products are the main and fundamental agriculture, aiding the town’s economy. Their biggest commercial enterprise being the cultivation, transportation and exportation of almonds. Wildlife such as foul and rabbits are scattered about these lands also claiming this region as their own. In the 20th century, Sucina bore witness to vast changes, from its progressive decline in its population. For example, 1,714 habitants were recorded in 1960. By 1970, figures dropped to 1,005 and further still in 1991 down to a total of 985 people. However, a recount in 1996 disclosed a rise in figures reaching 1,054 townsfolk registered and is obviously still rising. Sucina has two town halls. The older of the two is situated deep in the old town. Inside is a small theatre and a hairdresser, plus any other relevant information one may wish to know regarding any activities, courses and events taking pace in Sucina and Murcia. Outside the town hall, there is a play area for children with swings and other contraptions. Meanwhile, along the benches, the older townsfolk seek refuge from the sun under shade of the trees, keeping guard whilst their children play. A small platform stage can also be found outside the Ayuntamiento, where the steps of the town hall are utilised as makeshift seats, for any outdoor staged events. A few hundred yards away, just on the cusp of the town, one may discover the second and newer town hall, with a far more modern feel and almost clinical design. Several meters adjacent, there is a petrol station and a tobacconist. On one corner is a kiosk selling crisps, salted popcorn (palomitas - little doves or pigeons if you prefer) and sunflower seeds.
