Callosa de Segura backs onto the mountains of the same name that rise steeply from the area known as the Vega Baja. It is found by leaving junction 79 of the E15 motorway or junction 733 of the toll motorway AP7.
It is located about 30 minutes inland from the coast and it’s beaches and is only a ten minute drive from the busy city of Orihuela. Or if you prefer, catch the train from the local station which is just one stop from Orihuela.
The town was originally founded by the Moors and much of the medieval, Islamic influenced architecture is still evident today Callosa de Segura has historically been associated with hemp and rope making, although today agriculture plays a more important role in the local economy; particularly the cultivation of citrus fruits. The land is really fertile and is irrigated by the Segura River that runs through the area.
The town has good transport links and excellent facilities provided by the town hall and central government. This includes the station mentioned above, doctors, good schools and sports facilities. There are even a couple of golf courses located nearby. With the usual array of bars and restaurants providing local and international fare, Callosa de Segura seems t have everything covered.
