The biggest market in Spain is held in Torrevieja town on a Friday morning where a variety of purchases can be made. Torrevieja is situated next to the sea in the south of the Valencian Community. It is surrounded by two large natural saltwater lagoons that form the well-known "Salterns of Torrevieja", which are considered to be the biggest in Europe and second in the world. Some people bathe in the salt lakes as they are renowned for their healing properties. There are several churches to visit in the town, The Archpriest's Parish Church of the Inmaculada Concepción being the most famous in the main square in Torrevieja ?Plaza de la Constitution?. The building of this church on the site of former temples began in 1880.It holds the statue of the town?s patron saint, La Purisima Concepcion. This image arouses popular fervour in Torrevieja, especially on the two occasions a year that it is taken out for processions. One of the main attractions to Torrevieja are the variety of festivals and carnivals which take place every month.
There are many beautiful beaches, squares, walks, parks, gardens and other natural beauty spots (Ferriz), as well as some wonderful historical monuments such as the 'Modernist Casino' which dates from the beginning of the century and has a famous hall in the mozarabic style. Also there is the 'Recinto de las Eras de la Sal' an open, air theatre. There are a variety of restaurants and bars catering for all tastes, pockets and ages plus a good choice of shops from budget to designer. On the outskirts of the town centre there is the popular Habaneras shopping centre with the Ozone complex next door which has an English cinema and bowling alley. There are also several large hypermarkets with a huge selection of goods for sale at very reasonable prices, even with the fall of the pound against the euro. You can take boat trips from the port, there is a funfair next to Torrevieja Marina and a variety of activities are available within a 10 minute drive, including go karting and a zoo.

A 10 minute walk will bring you to the Las Lomas commercial centre which has bars, restaurants, small shops , a small childrens play area, taxi rank and another bus stop to take you to Torrevieja along the coastal road or, in the other direction to La Mata. At La Mata are the remains of the old port at Torrevieja, called the Embarcadero Romano, or Roman Docks. Along this coast are the ancient watchtowers called El Moro and La Mata, used in the Middle Ages to warn the coastal inhabitants of attacks by Barbary pirates. La Mata is a smaller, more village like town than Torrevieja and the bus takes you into the town centre, just near the square, by the beautiful sandy beach, which is a gathering point for the locals, especially of an evening when they take their stroll. La Mata is a traditional small Spanish town with a friendly atmosphere. There are pretty bars and restaurants, catering for all tastes, budgets and cuisines, for a beachside drink or meal. If you prefer to walk there is wooden promenade from Torrelamata beach (nearest to our apartment), right along to La Mata town, taking you through some pretty beachside parkland. There are several tasteful bars lining the beach and along the promenade to stop and enjoy the view of the aqua blue warm sea and never ending sandy beach and dunes . The beach at the La Mata town end is particularly attractive and there is a children?s play park and keep fit equipment which are popular with tourist and locals alike. On a Wednesday morning a market is held in the colourful back streets where many a bargain can be found.
The next resort along from La Mata on this spectacular coastline is Guardamar. We recommend a visit to the stunning beach there, which boast a superb Pine and Eucalyptus Forest, ideal for Picnics and Bar-B-Qs. Slightly further North is the resort and old Spanish town of La Marina where you enjoy a game of Bowls, in it?s that welcomes guests.
If you fancy live entertainment whilst you are enjoying a meal, the Celtic Manor, next to Super Valu supermarket, approximately a 5/10 minute walk down the hill, often has singers, bands and flamenco shows. For the more energetic there is also cycle hire across the road from the Celtic Manor enabling you to explore the area including the protected salt lakes and pretty conservation areas nearby. Fishing is also a popular pastime from the local beaches and rocks nearby.
The Costa Blanca is an ideal location for some of the most magnificent beaches in Spain, which vary from small coves to long stretches of golden sand with sand dunes. The climate is excellent, with over 300 days of sunshine, and the surrounding area is steeped in history. The Salt lakes and these lagoons help to draw the moisture out of the air, as well as being the home to hundreds of Flamingo's. Combined with a low rainfall (approx 11 days a year), this creates a microclimate with low humidity, which makes the Torrevieja region ideal for asthma, rheumatism, and arthritis sufferers.
