About
El Real Casino de Murcia (Royal Casino of Murcia) is an emblematic building in the city of Murcia. Its unique architecture combines modernist and eclectic artistic styles, and the beauty of the building awakes the admiration of all visitors. In fact, it is the most visited civil building in Murcia. It is situated in the heart of the city centre, on Calle Trapería, close to the Cathedral. The Royal Casino hosts a great variety of cultural activities, such as art exhibitions, talks, conferences, three book clubs and book launches. Institutional ceremonies and business events are also held in the Royal Casino. The splendour of the historic building is perfectly preserved yet it is adapted to modern times.

    Stunning Inside and Out!
    Really enjoyed wandering around the different rooms with the guidebook which was provided as part of the entrance fee. It wasn't too busy and we could spend plenty of time admiring the artwork. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Murcia!

    A small but magnificient place - not to be missed
    We came here a bit by chance - suddenly we saw the interesting exterior - and went in. This is in all ways an interesting and beautiful place to visit. There is also a restaurant in there - I think it could be good to have lunch here (but we did not have the time to do that) but you should plan for it.

    Unexpected beautiful surprise!
    We just went to the centre of Murcia to have a quick look without any expectations. First of all, the centre is really nice with some beautiful buildings and a good vibe. We wanted to see Real Casino de Murcia and we were more than impressed by what we saw. What a beautiful interior. Can strongly recommend to spend some time here

    Beautiful building well worth visiting.
    We visited this lovely building while on a day trip from Alicante. The English language brochure was really lovely and the building itself was beautiful especially the Moorish elements at the front near the entrance. Definitely worth a visit. We were just sad that it didn’t have a restaurant as it would have been a lovely place to dine.

Surprisingly large building tucked in amongst the other surrounding properties, the decor harked back to older times even though the Casino dates back only to the 1850`s and was recently renovated.
Fancy chandeliers, gold leaf and painted ceilings adorn the rooms.
The Casino is a private member`s club and only the downstairs area is open to the public and as such, I thought the entrance fee of three Euros a bit steep.....oh well......

Real Casino de Murcia Men’s Club. Guidebooks are available in several languages, we selected English. Booklets guide you through each room and tell you the significance of that room and about the things you find in each room. The building dates to 1847 and was refurbished between 2006 and 2009. Definitely one of the must-see places in Murcia. Ballroom with ceiling fresco portraying Murcia’s most famous cultural figures like Francisco Salzillo. Entry Hall with Moorish effects
Closeup of wall art. The Galeria Central. The English Library. Canvas painting on the ceiling by Jose Marin Baldo. Venus by Jose Planes won National Sculpture in 1920.

We were here on April 24th, 2022 (a Sunday) for only about 45 minutes. You should probably take a little bit more time than we did but we had our twin toddlers so we were a little bit on their schedule. They open at 10:30am and we were some of the first people there and continued to be some of the only people there for our visit. We thought for sure, with it being the weekend, that there would be a lot more people.

As a side note, we were staying in Valencia & Torreviaja and we knew Murcia was a fairly large town so we wanted to check it out. I really didn't get the impression there was much to do, though, in this town after some digging, so this is the only thing we did in Murcia. Not sure if there is anything better to do but this was the only thing I could find worth making the trip over for.

I didn’t expect much from this attraction but actually it was one of my favourite sites of the city.
It’s attractive from the outside but the inside is far more impressive.
There is a scannable code to access an audio guide on your phone, allowing you to hear some information about each are of the casino site. The decor is lovely and if you choose to listen to every part of the audio guide as I did then you’re looking st around 40 minutes to see and hear everything. Some really stunning decor on show.

What a fantastic building to visit. I felt like I was stepping back in time. Takes about 30 minutes to see it, mostly on the ground floor. You see about 12 different rooms. We paid €3 reduced entry fee.....normally €5. Definitely worth it.

Beautiful building and wonderful for lunch. This seems to be an underrated venue based on the speed with which tours came and went. We found it interesting with knowledgeable staff. We managed to have lunch there as well and the food (was reasonable) and service were outstanding. There is no gambling here ...casino means a gathering place.

Stepped inside and marvelled at the entrance to this place. The details and patterns were Devine. Didn't venture further, as several comments said once past the desk it didn't offer much, but the walk in the front doors and to the kiosk is superb.
