Car Hire Torrevieja

Torrevieja Guide

Torrevieja is another of the Costa holiday resorts and might be thought of in the same vein but it has much to recommend it other than the beach. There are a number of pretty churches one of which; The Church of the Immaculate Conception, was built using some of the stones from the old tower. Elsewhere the Sea and Salt Museum is worth an hour or two of your time as there you can find out the history of the resort before tourism. Spend some time too at the Molino del Agua, a natural park based around one of Torrevieja’s salt lakes.


Torrevieja Directions

To get to Torrevieja in your hire car from Murcia San Javier Airport, simply take the AP7 coast road north.

Torrevieja Info

Torrevieja’s economy once rested on the salt that was mined nearby or collected from the two salt lakes when they dried up in summer. Before that, all that marked the area was an old watch tower built in the days of the Arab raids along the coast. Since the 1960s, Torrevieja has instead mined the boom in cheap tourism and as a result now has a large and thriving British expat community. It has a wide seafront promenade that passes many of the hotels but is also known for its 19th century architecture in the old town.

Torrevieja Trivia:
  • Torrevieja was originally a salt mining and fishing village
  • The town is set between two salt lakes which help give it a warm microclimate
  • The name of the town means old tower and until the 19th century that was all that was there
  • In 1829 the town was razed to the ground by an earthquake
  • So many expats from the north of the UK live in Torrevieja that it’s now got the nickname of the ‘Costa del Yorkshire’
