Monuments and Culture

In Roman times, this area was well known for its outstanding port, the remains of which can still be seen in La Mata, called 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 pitates.

Among the town monuments is the Archpriest's Church of the Immaculate Conception, from the turn of the century, the masonry bridge of the Acequi? and the Modernist Casino, with an original Neo-Mudejar salon where numerous cultural activities are staged.

The Recinto de las Eras de la Sal is the site of the town's most emblematic cultural manifestation: the International Habaneras and Polyphony Event

Habaneras arrived in Spain through Torrevieja in the 19th century, brought back by sailors from these lands in schooners used to transport salt to Cuba. The Habaneras Event is held in the month of August each year for an entire week, attracting the best national and international choral groups to pay homage to this style of Caribbean music.

Fiestas

Torrevieja's festive calendar starts in February with the happy sounds of the Carnival heralding in the spring. Then come the solemn Holy week processions up and down the streets of the town. In the month May, in the Real de la Feria, Torreviejans dance sevillanas, taste the finest sherries from the south, and enjoy riding on horse back. In summer, there are outdoor parties and processions, especially on 16 July, the feast day or Our Lady of Carmelo, the patron saint of sailors, with a traditional sea-and-land procession. October brings the High Feast of La Mata.

The traditional patron saint feasts to honour the Immaculate Conception is held from 1 to 17 December, saying farewell to the year with processions, flower offerings, competitions and fireworks.

Cuisine and Craftsmanship

The taste of the sea is reflected anew in local gastronomy, which makes ample use of fish and seafood, in combination with produce from local market gardens.

The most characteristic feature of local craftmanship are the models of the boats used to transport salt in the marshes. Boat builders take their creations to the edge of the salt flats, where they are left to collect the bright glaze of the local salt, before being offered as souvenirs.
