La Aparecida is very much a small town village set in its ways and thanks to this, it has not lost an ounce of its traditional Spanish courntyside character. A very unique character reigns over this town as it sits between the provinces of Alicante and Murcia and has belonged to both over the years. New farming methods and a thriving economy are patent in the towns ever increasing amenities and services but still customs are not lost and hospitality is still a number one priority.
It is well worth a trip to visit La Aparecida and get to know a village and its people who greet with open arms anyone who wishes to learn a little about this hidden gem at the base of the incredible Sierra de Orihuela mountain range.
Apart from its particular secular history, La Aparecida is also quite well documented because of its positioning on the skirts of the impressive Sierra de Orihuels. At its summot, "La Pilastra", it measures 633m above sea level and offers spectacular views over the Vega Baja and the neighbouring Murcia province.
At another of its many breathtaking beauty spots, it is the "Pico del Aguilla" (Eagle's Beak) that is of most interest due to the caves which can be found there with impressive stalactities and stalagmites. The most famous of these caves it the "Cueva del Santo" (Saint's cave) that can be found on the northwest ridge of the mountain range.
The fauna of the mountain range is very typical of southeast peninsula / Mediterranean climate.
The Vega Baja is full of exciting and interesting activities all through the year. Whether it be water sports at the beaches and marinas of the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida, to the exhilarating exploration of the many paths and routes in the area.
For guests looking for hill / rock climbing adventure/s outside La Aparecida then try :
* Callosa (nearby)
* La Panocha (SE of Murcia)
* Leyva (Sierra de Espuna)
* Marin and Pena del Corb (both near Elda)
In most cases you can drive to near the foot of the climbing crags, apart from Leyva where we had a 45 minute walk in, but it was a lovely National Park.
Golf also plays an important part of leisure with several golf courses nearby, such as: La Finca (Algorfa) and Altorreal (Molina del Degura) which are considered to be quite challenging and fun courses for novices and experts alike.
History and Culture plays an inportant part of the regions character. Orihuela has long been regarded as one of the most important ecclesiastic centres of Spain with much of its architecture based on gothic and classical styles which tried to cover up any remnants fo its Islamic past. The palaces and stately homes of Tudemir Pinohermoso, Marquis of Rafal, Condes de la Granja, Marquis of Arneva, Rubalcava and Baron of Linde to name but a few as well as the monasteries, convents, chapels and churches (2 cathedrals) which make up the heart of this impressive city.
La Aparecida has also a range of activities such as trekking along the many paths among the slopes of the Sierra de Orihuela mountain range where wild hares, eagles and quails can be seen amongst the stocky Mediterranean pine tree forests. Furthermore, La Aparecida is home to the area's recently built indoor municipal swimming and sports centre. Each Sunday morning there is a local market from 09.00 approx. to 14.00 hrs approx, here you will find an array of goods, leathers, local fruit / vegetables, clothing, etc.
But probably one of the best things to do in La Aparecida is enjoy their fiestas and local cuisine at the many small family run restaurants and tapa bars in all the small villages of the region.
