But local residents and tourists enjoy not only nature and comfortable accommodation; the climate and location of the city make this place suitable for the treatment of various diseases.


In the first half of the 19th century, instead of a city, there was a tower, an observation tower and several houses in this place. In 1829, a powerful earthquake occurred in southern Spain. The intensity of the tremors then amounted to 6 points. Many cities were affected, but the greatest damage was caused to Torrevieja.

However, the city was restored, and its symbol, the old tower, was rebuilt by local residents at their own expense. Temples and towers, which have now become cultural monuments, were destroyed. But all the famous objects have been restored and are now ready to receive guests. The main wealth of Torrevieja — pink lagoon of Salinas de Torrevieja. Salt mining in it turned an ordinary village into a developed city.
