The Orihuela area guide
Orihuela is an ancient city located in the East of Spain in the province of Alicante. The region is popular with ex-pats due to its proximity to Alicante and its beautiful beaches. The Romans initiated the first settlement in Orihuela, naming it Orcelis at the time, and then changing it to Aurariola. These days, it is home to roughly 33,943 people, with British people making up 20% of this figure, while there are only 59.6% Spanish residents. Orihuela remains to this day, the historical capital of the Vega Baja, a region nearby that is known locally as a 'comarque', a place that is a cross between a municipality and a province.
Things To Do
Orihuela Cathedral is a stunning building, and is the main Roman Catholic Church of the city. It was erected under the orders of King Alfonso X of Castile in 1281 on the site of an old mosque that was originally built during the Moorish conquest, and has preserved some of its Arabic design features to this day. The landmark gained cathedral status in 1510, and features some fascinating Valencian Gothic designs that were a common theme during the Renaissance period. The Castille de Orihuela is another tremendous example of the city's history, although it is only the remains that look over the city in the Monte de San Miguel area. The castle was built by the Moors, and is another reminder of the eclectic mix of architecture and culture Orihuela has to offer.
Orihuela has over 14 different beaches, stretching out to over 16km, and are all hugely popular with the Spanish as they are with tourists. Each beach has Blue Flag status, which means breath-taking blue seas galore, although La Zenia and Campoamor are the finest two of them all. In the town centre there are a range of different museums to cater to different interests, such as the Museum of the Reconquest, which celebrates the different cultures of the Moors and the Christians, the Diocesan Museum of Religious Art, the Regional Archaeological Museum of Origuela and Miguel Hernández House-Museum.
Places To Eat
Restaurante El Divino is a quaint little restaurant where you can sample local cuisine such as 'a banda' (a rice dish cooked with fish stock) for very affordable prices. Manolo is a lovely restaurant that has an excellent selection of tapas dishes on their menu, particularly the fried zucchini with ham, bacalao and gamba. O'Sole Mio is another great choice for dining out, and offers a range of other Mediterranean dishes as well as the traditional local cuisine that the area is famed for. The Cellar Door offers a more modern take on European cuisine, and is featured in the top 10 on TripAdvisor for the area of Costa Blanca.
La Zenia Boulevard is a new shopping centre in Orihuela that has the feel of an American shopping mall with a Mediterranean twist. It is home to 150 different shops, and offers customers the chance to park for free, with 5000 different parking spots. Ociopia is another shopping centre, and is open every day of the week. Here, you can find retail outlets such as C&A, H&M and Bershka, as well as a 3D cinema and a food court.
There is a market held every Tuesday in Orihuela, which is open from 8:00 to 14:00, and has a nice variety of fruits and vegetables at very low costs. San Miguel de Salinas, Torrevieja Market and Playa Flamenca are also not too far off. These weekly markets offer a range of different products.
Getting There/Getting Around
El Altet Airport is the closest airport to Orihuela, although a taxi journey may be required as there are no existing direct connections. Orihuela-Miguel Hernández is the sole railway station in the city, and allows access to Cartagena, Valencia and Barcelona, to name a few. Bus services are the most common way of getting around, with Torrevieja and Murcia being amongst the most common routes. The AP-7 and A-7 connect to Orihuela, whilst the N-332 goes along the coast, making it the ideal route for beachgoers.
