Torrevieja is situated next to the sea in the south of the Valencian Community and it boasts lots of beaches, a natural park and salt lakes where there is an abundance of flamingos and other wildlife. Due to the vicinity of the salt lakes, Torrevieja benefits from a microclimate that has been a long favourite with the Spanish and Nordic tourists who come year after year for its beneficial effects.
Alicante, the provincial capital is about 47 Kms away, and the international airports of El Altet and San Javier are about 35 Kms away.
In recent years Torrevieja has become a first-class tourist location, it boasts 360 days of sun a year and an average temperature of 18°C. There are many beautiful beaches, squares, walks, parks, gardens and other natural beauty spots, 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; the “Recinto de las Eras de la Sal” an open, air theatre.
Torrevieja is also well known for its outstanding port, the remains of which can still be seen in La Mata, called the embarcadero Romano, or Roman docks. Along the 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.
One of the main attractions to Torrevieja are the variety of festivals which take place every month. Some of the most popular events in Spain are the Carnavals in which thousands of people join in, forming a light show of colour, satir and good humour. The Holy Week attracts lots of people into the streets, converting these into huge paths of colour penance and popular religiosity. Good Friday at night is one of the most venerated and admired festivals on the Spanish eastern coast.

Francisco bought this apartment in 2001: he saw the start of the construction and asked the developers of the building. He liked very much the location and decided to sell his apartment that was 2 streets behind (not in front of the sea) and buy this new apartment facing the sea.
Francisco and his wife have been spending their holidays in Torrevieja since they were little children and remember when Torrevieja was a fisher men little town. They have seen the development of this city in Costa Blanca.
