The Sanctuary of Santa Eulalia de Mérida, «La Santa»

Totana is a municipality in the Region of Murcia, located in the valley of Guadalentín, on the natural route that links the Levant with Andalusia, just forty kilometers from the city of Murcia and thirty of the Mediterranean coast. Its excellent communications are favored by the Autovía del Mediterráneo and the railway line through which several commuter trains and other connections to various cities circulate daily.

At the foot of Sierra Espuña is the Sanctuary of Santa Eulalia.

The Sanctuary of Santa Eulalia de Mérida, «la Santa», is located seven kilometers from the city of Totana. It is accessed by a road through the orchards of this municipality, a place where orange, lemon, almond and flowers offer a show of special fragrance.This road continues through perfumes of pines, rosemary and thyme to enter the foothills of the Sierra Espuña, where the architectural set of “La Santa” emerges in harmony with nature. From there you can reach the medieval village of Aledo by a road enveloped, equally, with soft Mediterranean vegetation.

In this Sanctuary, the image of Santa Eulalia de Merida is venerated, patroness of Totana since 1644. This devotion goes beyond the limits of the city to extend to other points of the Region of Murcia, as well as other regions, from where pilgrims and devotees arrive.
