Municipality of Bullas
Associated beneficiary

Bullas is a municipality located in the Northwestern area of the Region of Murcia (South East of Spain), 53 km from the regional capital. It has a surface of 82 square kilometres and a population of 12,500 inhabitants. Most of them live in the town of Bullas and the remaining ones (about 900 people) live in the village of La Copa, located 4 km North of the municipality.
Bullas is located about 650 metres above sea level, which is a strong influence in its Mediterranean climate, giving it a higher level of rainfall (about 400 mm/year) than in the rest of the Region of Murcia and cooler temperatures. Its landscape mixes forest areas with extensive growing fields of mainly vines, almond and apricot trees.
The economy is dominated by the sectors of construction, industry and agriculture. Bullas is especially noted by the production of wine, having the declaration of Origin Denomination Area since 1994. Wine is a very important sign of identity and cultural tradition for the town but also a tool for its economic and tourist development.

The Town Council of Bullas is the local administration responsible for the territory and population of the Municipality of Bullas. It was created in June 1690 after the separation from the neighbour town of Cehegín by decree of the king of Spain Carlos II.
The Town Council has the competences common for this level of local administration in Spain (municipalities) and it is responsible for services in the areas of town planning, security, environment, agriculture, local development, tourism, commerce, social policy, health, housing, education, culture, sports and youth among others.
