A Taste of Heritage
I love medieval markets and the one in Orihuela is a really good one.
Orihuela is a small city, 50 km from Alicante and famous for its historic monumental architecture, Easter Processions and traditional gastronomy, including convent-made sweets and cakes.
Every year, at the end of January, Orihuela commemorates that back in the XV century it was one of the most imporant cities in the Kingdom of Castile.
The market has been running for 17 years now and with more than 350 stalls it is considered one of the biggest in Spain.
Magic tricks, toffee apples, falconry exhibitions, street food stalls…a trip back in time you cant miss!
If you plan to stay overnight, try the luxury Tudemir Boutique Hotel, a beautifully restored palace from the XVIII century.
