“Muy caro”-too expensive, is the usual cry when bartering in Spain. This time you’ve come away with a genuine leather handbag, but you were close to buying gloves instead.
Soon you will stop at the next stall, choosing from among hand-painted pottery jars, beautifully decorated porcelain plates and tablecloths embroidered with that dash of Spanish flair.
There on a shelf you might spot the typical local made ornamental boats coated with crystallised salt, with a wake made of tiny painted shells.
Close by there, is a stall displaying silver jewellery, leather bracelets and all kinds of costume jewellery.
The cries of the stall holders mingle with the bids of the enthusiastic bargain hunters. The sun sparkles through the palm leaves as the sea air sweeps in over the market place. “Si, si, senor. Bueno!”
Torrevieja has around 85,000 permanent inhabitants. This figure increases in the peak months of summer to over 300,000.
The town is Spain at its most genuine. Small alleys, proud portals, louvered windows, shops that lie cheek by jowel, bustling crowds
Every August there is a “Habaneras” contest of traditional folk songs.
The food displayed in the cool, permanent indoor market makes your mouth water. The stall holders show off their supplies of delicious greens and fruit with lively gestures. The fish is so fresh that it is still wriggling. The mussels, oysters and “gambas”-large prawns are delicacies that you will not be able to resist unless you keep your eyes tightly shut. The air is saturated with the aroma of fresh spices sold by weight.
After all that you will perhaps find yourself back outside again walking along the main palm lined street. The sun is beating down, your throat is dry and your stomach empty. You will just pop into a local restaurant for some “tapas” (a selection of small Spanish dishes from a counter) and a glass of chilled local wine. Or you may just grab a “cocas” in a stand up bar; “cocas” is a kind of pastry with vegetables and salted fish. The town has about 200 restaurants and offers an infinite variety of foreign cuisine. You can have almost anything you like. French food, Austrian Vienna Schnitzel, English home cooking, pasta, pizza, Dutch, Chinese and Indian or even Argentinean specialities

Torrevieja, on the Costa Blanca, presents a fine combination of tourist attractions and commercial activity from its salt flats. The local La Mata y Torrevieja Lagoon nature park, is a unique area in which the age-old tradition of salt mining has successfully been combined with concerns for the conservation of local marshlands and nesting sites for migratory birds. The Torrevieja coastline, with its promenade, clean beaches, and modern yacht club , which can be seen in this webcam, with a full range of services and tourist installations, is one of the most attractive tourist destinations along the southern coast of the Region of Valencia.
