Orihuela Holiday, Property and Tourist Information


The town of Orihuela is located on the southern Costa Blanca, approximately 30 minutes drive from the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean. With a population of over 56,000 it offers an excellent selection of markets, shops, restaurants and other facilities; in addition to government run institutions, such as a hospital, train station, schools, doctor's surgeries etc.


Historically Orihuela is an important town, and evidence of this is clearly noticeable in the older parts of the city; where an impressive collection of churches and other fine architecture can be found. It was here (at the Santiago church building) that the Monarchs of the Catholic countries met to generate funds for the conquest of Granada in 1488.

Although well away from the tourist enclaves, sporting enthusiasts are still well catered for; with the town boasting good municipal swimming pools and many other facilities. Orihuela is no more than a 20 minute drive from a good selection of golf courses; with La Finca and la Marquesa clubs significantly closer.

Tradition is also an important factor in Orihuela life, and there are many fiestas (festivals) throughout the town calendar; some of which are a real spectacle and well worth a look. The cuisine is another major bonus though made up of mainly traditional Spanish fare; although international tastes are also catered for.

Orihuela is also well known for its mild climate and the entire region enjoys sunshine for in excess of 320 days per year. The sun is at its hottest during the summer months, with temperatures rarely falling below 30�C (86�F). Winters are typically very mild with averages hovering around 18�C (64�F).
