    Orihuela, the gracious lady of Costa Blanca

    If Orihuela were a woman, she'd be a grandmother who was a celebrated beauty in her youth. She'd be meticulously dressed in grand vintage gowns. She'd have colorful stories of her past, particularly of the time she was the glorious capital of the now-gone Kingdom of Valencia and Orihuela Province. She'd have fond memories of her famous son, the poet Miguel Hernandez. She'd feed you delicious food, then shoo you off to the beach. And you'd love her for it. Orihuela vacation rentals will let you get to know and love her more.

    Relive Orihuela's heyday in her historic sites

    Orihuela's status as a kingdom's capital and a crossing point between Aragon and Castile left behind a rich cultural treasure trove of beautiful Gothic and baroque churches, palaces, and other historical landmarks. The Catedral de San Salvador and the Museo Diocesano de Arte Sacro are worthwhile stops. You can tour these landmarks on foot, preferably with a few snacks from the Medieval Market to keep your energy high. Once you've had your fill of Orihuela's old memories, you can head to Dehesa de Campoamor, where you can chill at the beach, play golf, or simply enjoy the scenery.

    Meet Miguel Hernandez, Orihuela's famous son

    Orihuela's landmarks have their own stories, but nothing tugs at the heartstrings more strongly than the story of Casa Museo Miguel Hernandez, the museum dedicated to Orihuela's resident poet. The self-taught Hernandez campaigned during the Spanish Civil War using poetry and was arrested for being anti-fascist when Francisco Franco took over Spain. In prison, Hernandez penned volumes of poetry, including his famous poem of hope and despair, "Onion Lullaby." Hernandez died from tuberculosis while behind bars. His works and personal belongings are now displayed in the museum that was once his home.

    Pack a sun hat in summer, a light coat in winter

    If Orihuela were a woman, she'd wear a sunhat in summer and a light coat in winter. Orihuela experiences a Mediterranean climate, meaning scorching summers with temperatures rising to 82 degrees and mild winters coasting at 68 degrees. Summers last from June to August, while winters run from December to February. November is Orihuela's rainiest month; even then, it doesn't rain much in this plain in Spain. Spring, from March to May, is the busiest season for Orihuela vacation rentals, so make sure you lock down yours if you're visiting in springtime.

    Orihuela: a land offering a cornucopia of citrus and cotton

    The city and municipality of Orihuela sits at the foot of the Sierra de Orihuela in the Valencia Community. Though the slopes of this mighty mountain range are dry and lacking in vegetation, the countryside surrounding Orihuela itself is fertile, thanks to the presence of the River Segura. Because of the river, Orihuela has become an important producer of fruits like pomegranates, lemons, and oranges, as well as silk, cotton, and hemp. The municipality also covers the Mediterranean beach resorts of Dehesa de Campoamor, where many Orihuela vacation rentals are located.
