Murcia is a first class municipality in the province of Negros Occidental. From waterfalls to river resorts, Murcia is home to the province’s flagship tourism attraction, the scenic and romantic Mambukal Summer Resort. Founded in 1860 by Augustinian Recollect priest, Fr. Miguel Alvarez, Murcia is believed to have gotten its name from a town in Spain.  During the Second World War, its municipal hall was used as a garrison by the Japanese, who were constantly attacked by guerillas who drove them out on April 21, 1945.  It was in the mountains of Murcia where a Free Negros Government was set up under Gov. Alfredo Montelibano, Sr. The Municipality of Murcia is bounded by the cities of Talisay, Silay and San Carlos on the north, Bago City on the south, the Municipality of Don Salvador Benedicto on the east, and the City of Bacolod on the west.
