Daya Vieja, Alicante- Spain

Daya Vieja Village Centre Costa Blanca Spain

Daya Vieja is located in the heart of the Lower Segura river plain, 42 km from Alicante and just 8 km from the coast. It is a privileged village because of the excellent communications (A-37. CV-910) and it is surrounded by the most authentic Segura Orchard.

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, its population has not increased so has a deeply rooted culture and tradition. Its origins are very ancient, examples of this are the original Greco-Roman funerary remains that were found recently near the town. However, the documentation we know so far about the local people back to the time of Arab domination where Daya Vieja was a Moorish Alquería of some importance.

DayaVieja Festivals

The village still preserves traditions that are manifested in various celebrations taking place throughout the year. Starting with Christmas we highlight the "Salida del Niño" which is a religious procession through all the homes in the area to bless them.

There is another festival in May , the traditional festival of San Isidro, patron of farmers, usually celebrated around May 15. It is traditional to eat the typical rabbit paella, a dessert called "almojábanas," or the delicious "brazo de gitano". The musical accompaniment is never lacking in these demonstrations and, of course, after the meal, the essential dance festival comes in handy.

Daya Vieja

Very close to the town, you can enjoy the beautiful beaches of Guardamar del Segura (5 km) or Torrevieja (15 km), it is an ideal place for those who want to enjoy the beaches in a quiet place. Also, it is very close to art cities such as Orihuela (20 km), or Elche (20 km). There are several museums nearby (the archaeological of Rojales, San Fulgencio, Guardamar, etc. or the ethnological of Almoradi, Rojales, Orihuela, etc.

There are walking paths such as the "Puente la Loza" or "Los Puentes" through which you can walk enjoying typical landscapes, savoring the sight of old houses with their typical farms, wood stoves, etc.
