Orihuela

The city of Orihuela Spain lies about 50 km south west of Alicante, just between Elche and Murcia.

With about 50,000 habitants Orihuela is a major city of the area. You can best reach Orihuela using the national road N 340 from Alicante.

Orihuela is the capital of what is called “La Vega Baja” (or the low fertile lowlands), one of the largest regions in the province of Alicante which pertains to the Valencian Community. It is about 57 kilometres south-west of Alicante heading inland although the region’s land reaches until the Costa Blanca and the sea.

There are two special 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. Through the entrance called Door of Loreto added in the XV, you can lay your eyes on a beautiful Baroque organ. Through another entrance, the Renaissance style is evident. The Palace of Rubalcava was inhabited by members of this family up until 1933 and in 1976 it became property of the town. It has a sweeping marble staircase that takes you up to the noble main salons – the red salon with family portraits, the yellow salon used nowadays for weddings, the dance hall or hall of mirrors with a French air.
