The Region o Murcia (Spainyie: Región de Murcia, IPA: [reˈxjon de ˈmurθja]; Valencie: Regió de Múrcia, IPA: [redʒiˈo ðe ˈmuɾsia])[1] is an autonomous commonty o Spain locatit in the sootheast o the kintra, atween Andalusie an Valencie Commonty, on the Mediterranean coast.

The autonomous commonty consists o a single province, unlike maist autonomous commonties, which hae several provinces athin the same territory. Acause o this, the autonomous commonty an the province are operatit as ane unit o govrenment. The ceety o Murcie is the caipital o the region an seat o govrenment organs, except for the parliament (Regional Assembly), which is locatit in Cartagena. The autonomous community an province is subdividit in municipalities.

The Region o Murcie is bordered bi Andalusie (the provinces of Almería an Granada); Castile-La Mancha (the province o Albacete, which wis historically connectit tae Murcie till 1980); the Valencie Commonty (province o Alicante); an the Mediterranean Sea. The community measurs 11,313 km² an haes a population o 1.4 million, o whom ane-third live in the caipital. The heichest muntain is Los Obispos (2,015 m).

The region is a major producer o fruits, vegetables, an flouers for Spain an the rest o Europe. Wineries hae developed near the touns o Bullas, Yecla, an Jumilla, as well as olive ile near Moratalla. Murcie is mainly a warm region which haes made it vera suitable for agricultur. Housomeivver the precipitation level is law an watter supply is a hot subject the day syne, in addition tae the traditional water demand for crops, there is nou an aw a demand o watter for the boomin tourist developments which take advantage o the mild wather an beaches. Water is suppleed bi the Segura River an, iver syne the 70's, bi the Tajo transvasement, a major ceevil ingineerin which, unner some environmental an sustainability restraints, brings watter frae the Tajo intae the Segura.
