The Area

The city of Torrevieja lies about 50 km south west of Alicante. You can reach Torrevieja via the road N 332, a wonderful road along the Costa Blanca. If you have some time discover the beauty of the area via this road – you will love it’s views. Torrevieja marks a kind of language line between the traditional valencian/catalan in the north of the costa blanca and the spanish wide castellano spanish.
Further in the south you will find more and more “spanish-only” speaking people,

 
The entire area around Torrevieja and Orihuela is famous for their salt production. Huge salt lakes surround the road down from Alicante.

It is impressive and fascinating every time I see the huge salt mountains producing annually more than half a million tons (it makes you respect your way you will use your salt and pepper next time). So if you visit the area of Torrevieja spend some time on your way to it.

The city get’s its name from an old tower (old=vieja ; tower=torre), was first mentioned around 1800. It became famous in 1802, when it took over the salt administration from Orihuela.

The harbor surrounded by many Torrevieja hotels, gives home to 300 fishing ships and over 900 private sport boats. A wonderful view especially when sun sets.

From a sightseeing point of view you best start your way exploring Torrevieja by foot beginning at the harbor. Along with Church of “la inmaculata conception” a visit to the museum of sea and salt (museo del mar y sal) and the fish market.
