A bit of our history

The history of San Fulgencio begins in the 18th century, when D. Luis de Belluga y Moncada, Bishop of Cartagena and Murcia, thought of the possibility of draining and populating these lands, which at that time were a source of infection for the surrounding population, and turning them into fertile lands suitable for cultivation. This project became known as the “Pías Fundaciones”.

To this Bishop is also due the name of the locality, as well as that since its foundation, it has the category of Villa Real, granted by King Felipe V. Its foundation dates back to 1729.

The first contingent of population that settled in San Fulgencio came from the Segura river basin (Murcia and its huerta). In 1794 San Fulgencio had 1,215 inhabitants, although due to the ups and downs of the crops and epidemics in 1857 the population had been reduced to 866 registered inhabitants.

A town that has traditionally been dedicated to agriculture, is experiencing a very strong and steady growth, due to the tourists it receives, given its special location next to the coastal enclaves of La Marina (Elche) and Guardamar del Segura, which has caused that, in addition to the main core, new developments have been built closer to the coast. The largest of these is the Urbanización La Marina, begun at the end of the 80s.

During the Civil War (1936-1939), it was called the Ukraine of the Segura .
