Details

Albatera is a small town, converniently located off Salida 78 of the A7/N340 motorway, just 12km from the city of Orihuela. It is also just half an hours drive from some of the finest beaches in the Costa Blanca and quarter of an hour to the impressive Albatera Golf and Country Club. A renouned course in the area. It has a population of between 10 and 11,000 inhabitants a smattering of who speak Catalan.


The town is steeped in history and is thought to have been inhabited in pre-historic times. The Romans invariably left their mark on the area with an intricate system of canals and irrigation channels; many of which are still in use today. In the past, the main source of revenue for the town was agriculture, predominantly lemons and dates, utilising the wetlands and plains of the surrounding area. Pig farming also figured in the recent past, although now, the town relies as much upon industry and commercial ventures as it does on agriculture and farming.


Akin to many Spanish towns, the old and the new sit side by side and you can visit the 18th Century Church of Santiago after a stroll down the clean, modern, palm tree lined avenues that can be found in the centre. There’s also a fantastic park that has a lake, fountains, gardens, trails and walks that must be visited whilst in the town. Traditional fiestas are celebrated here with a special week of celebrations in honour of Saint James.


It has all the amenities you expect, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. It’s also worth noting that it is known to have excellent schools. With it’s great location and facilities, it’s not surprising that Albatera is a popular place to live.
