Torrevieja and town of Pilar de la Horadada are in southern tip, last towns before you head into province of Murcia. When making holiday plans, if you are to arrive there by plane, closest airport would be one in Alicante called Altet. It has great flight combinations with rest of Europe, especially when flying in from England. It would only take you about half an hour at most to get safely to your hotel if you have thought about a car hire. Look for highway marked N-332 heading south and you are set. There are some bus companies connecting Torrevieja with Alicante, Elche, Murcia and other towns and cities. There are even hotels which have convenient service of picking up its guests. And if you are in a hurry or do not want to be bothered driving and wish to take in lovely scenery, then a taxi would do you well.
Salt and Habaneras from Torrevieja
In order to give directions, everyone referred to this town as where old tower is and therefore in Spanish - Torrevieja, which when translated to English means ‘ an old tower’. This swampy marsh area has been known for its high quality production of salt and one of places frquently used to store dried salt was in towers. There was one particular tower which was knocked down when this area was hit by an earthquake in 1829. Even nowadays, this whole area is constantly being shaken by earthquakes, one of last ones was just a few months ago. Although it is visited thanks to its beautiful beaches such as Cura, Locos or Mata, it is also visited because it has become popular for its habaneras, Cuban music. One might think that it is quite strange that such far away music has planted its roots so strongly in a little salt mining town in Spain. But there is a very reasonable explanation. Torrevieja carried on a constant flow of salt trading with Cuba and sailors who did this route were spellbound by this lively music and wanted to share it with their home folks and brought it back here. As we can well see, its has been happily transmitted from one generation to another. There is a fantastic international music festival of habaneras held annually at end of July or beginning of August. If you are in area at this time of year and wish further details, Patronizer of Competition ( Patronato Municipal del Certamen International de Habaneras ) can help you or look in web.
