The mineral-rich water of the Mar Menor is revered for its health-giving properties and is listed by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places on earth.The area dedicates a large part of its economic activity to the industry of services and tourism.HistoryThe name Los Alcazares derives from the Arabic word ´Al Kazar´, meaning ‘palace’ or ´house of nobles’. These were buildings that were constructed by the Moors for their holidays and relaxation.Furthermore, it was the Moors who discovered the excellent properties of the water of the Mar Menor, which they enjoyed in the ancient Roman Baths.
