Might be worth you installing Park4Night app if you can. The app lists four locations in Lorca. The one with the most reviews is Gasolinera SOMOS CEPSA 37.6591, -1.69822

Andalucia!!! Wash your mouth out.

The nearest official overnight parking I know to is at Caravans Lorca but it's out of the town.

@gus-lopez lives at Lorca so he may have more knowledge.

The other option is to park outside and take the train into Lorca.

Totana has a safe camperstop :LOL:

You can cycle to Lorca centre 25km and then the same back, on a flat canal road! With the exception of one very short hill where the canal goes through!!!

No, you would have to bus it. Coach station 5 mins from parking.

If looking for an actual 'site' then no I can't think of anywhere. Personally I'd use the outside parking area of the 'Parque Almenara' commercial centre.
Or even quieter but in same place , go around the back of MediaMarkt/Corte Asia where there is parking on one side of road that has never been used since it was built. Or past the commercial centre around the back where it is all laid out for housing , half a dozen different roads with nothing in & go nowhere so no passing traffic.
There are regular buses into town from the commercial centre during the day until around 10pm
Only 5 minutes into Lorca where you could park up in the pay car park next to Lidl's. Or use the car park next to the Visitors centre ( Taller del Tiempo)
Ideal spot this would be as from there you can get the little visitors train that does the town tour & finishes at the castle .(Not sure when it starts running though)
I had a look at a couple of those in park4 night & the one in town is down very narrow roads & is a waste ground car park last I saw . Additionally it is also inside the " Nothing over 6m in length" restricted area.As is the one round by the National police station & which is also waste ground parking .
Last motorhome I saw parked there was blocked in by people parking for work in the mornings.:D

I'd use & do use regularly all & any of the above parking for prolonged periods when I go in to town using the motorhome.
When are you proposing to come is also a factor & how big is your MH ?
Other than that there is only what judith , @jumartoo , stated either camping sierra espuña Totana side of Lorca or caravanaslorca which is on the Saprelorca industrial estate & on the Puerto Lumbreras side.
I can think of lots of quiet overnight places in the outskirts of town but you would still need to travel into town. i'll rack my brains a bit more.:)

If you are proposing visiting the castle then there is excellent parking up there which , unless it has changed ,is free if going in castle.

& please don't confuse us with the beggars next door.:)

Al final los únicos normales son los Murciano(y):LOL:

How keen are you, this week, next week or just adding it to your plan....if as @jumartoo suggests you fancy using Totana camperstop, then the Totana to Lorca train is the best option, we live next door to the camperstop and can get you to the train, but not until Friday this week.

Many thanks for this info, gus. (y) We are planning on parking up around the Parque Almenara tonight so that we can visit Lorca places of interest tomorrow.
