The Taifa of Lorca was a Muslim Arab medieval taifa kingdom in what is now southern Spain.

The taifa was first created in 1042, when Lorca declared its independence from the emirate of Valencia. Its first governor was Ma'n Ibn Sumadih, its power extending from the city to Jaén and Baza.

The taifa was shortly recreated in 1228, after the fall of the Almoravids. It lasted until c. 1250, when it was conquered by the taifa of Murcia.
