Orihuela is an ancient city and district in Alicante Province. Nestled at the foot of the Sierra de Orihuela mountains, this region of the Costa Blanca is divided into three parts; the historic centre, La Pedrera Reservoir countryside area and the coast, while the glorious beaches of neighbouring resort Punta Prima are just a 40 minute car journey away. With the Segura River running through the middle, the streets of Orihuela have an authentically Spanish flair, with traditional markets and tapas bars, yet you will also find shopping malls and boutiques in-between the many museums and religious structures. The city is brought to life with a blend of architectural styles, from Baroque chapels to Roman Catholic cathedrals providing the perfect backdrop to an alfresco meal. Once you've had your fill of sightseeing, unwind on beaches like award-winning Playa Flamenca and family-friendly Playa de la Glea. For a change of scenery, take a day trip to Alicante, less than an hour's drive, train, or bus journey away.
