Culture in the city or stroll along the coast this weekend

There are three walks/guided tours coming up in Orihuela in the next few days. Over 300 people took part in last weekend’s tour of the countryside in Barbarroja, so they are a great way to see new sights and meet new people.

First on Saturday May 5th is a Cultural Tour of the city, starting from the Tourism Office at 11am and taking in the numerous historic monuments.

The tour is free but places are limited so book a place by calling 96 530 46 45 or 96 530 27 47.

Then on Sunday May 6th is a Maritime Tour along the coast, starting from the Cabo Roig watch tower at 10am. This costs €5, which includes a tasting of local delicacies.

Again places are limited but can be booked calling the Orihuela Costa Tourism Office on 96 676 00 00 ext. 32 or the one in the city on the numbers above.

Finally there is a special walk especially for senior citizens called Mayores en Marcha on Thursday May 10th.

This 3km walk will set off from the sports centre in Orihuela city but there is a free bus available from Orihuela Costa at the Mercadona roundabout in Playa flamenco at 8:30am. The bus will return at 1pm.
