Torrevieja is the closest city, only a short drive away. The bigger cities of the region are Alicante, Murcia and Orihuela. All of them worth a visit. Take also a look at the small films here!
Torrevieja is a seaside city. It has a vibrant multi national population with over 1000 bars and restaurants with plenty going on all year round. With over 300 days of sunshine each year and the so called micro climate with temperatures between 15 -35° there is always something to do.
Murcia is a university city in southeastern Spain and the capital of the region of Murcia. Plaza Cardinal Belluga is the city’s architectural showpiece, where the ornate cathedral, with its mash-up of styles from Gothic to baroque, and the colorful 18th-century Palacio Episcopal stand in striking contrast to the modern 1990s ayuntamiento (city hall) annex by architect Rafael Moneo.
Alicante is a port city on Spain’s southeastern Costa Blanca, and the capital of the Alicante province. Its old town, Barrio de la Santa Cruz, has narrow streets, colored houses and a lively nightlife scene. From here, an elevator or a steep climb leads to medieval Castillo de Santa Bárbara, set on a hilltop with sweeping views of the Mediterranean coast.
The city of Orihuela Spain lies about 50 km south west of Alicante, just between Elche and Murcia. Orihuela is a city and municipality located at the feet of the Sierra de Orihuela mountains in the province of Alicante. There are especially two monuments to see; The Cathedral and the Palace of Rubalcalva. The Cathedral was built on grounds where a mosque had once been in the XII century and shows a Gothic style.
