Orihuela Spain

Orihuela Spain

Orihuela Spain, South of Alicante

While many of the towns and villages in the Costa Blanca region are fairly small, Orihuela is a fair-sized city with 50,000 permanent residents. It is also a very old city, having been established by the Carthaginians, who were followed by the Visigoths and Moors.

Having been freed from the emirate, Orihuela is a totally Spanish city with slight overtones and touches from its past history. You could spend your entire vacation simply looking at the fantastic architecture in this city - everywhere you turn, you see unique and beautiful homes, churches, and public buildings.

One that you will not want to miss is the Cathedral, a Gothic structure almost 1,000 years old, which was constructed on the site of a mosque. The Tower is the oldest part of the Cathedral, its construction began in the late thirteenth century and was in the fourteenth century when it expanded both in height and width.

Regardless of the many historic features in Orihuela, you will find that it is a completely modern city too.

Orihuela Spain

Excellent hotels are available for the tourist as well as apartments for more independent living. The city abounds in restaurants, cafes, and bars, and there are festivals throughout the year to fascinate and entertain.

Although the city is inland, nestled in the hills, it is only a short drive to the famous beaches of the Costa Blanca. A visit to Orihuela can combine the best of a visit to Spain with the availability of beautiful beaches. If you are planning on a trip to Orihuela, it would be best if you rented a car.
