Torrevieja - Costa Blanca

The salt and the sea are the unseparable elements which have marked the history and determined the present day reality of Torrevieja. At the beginning of the last century, Torrevieja was only a watch tower and a few houses. In 1802 the La Mata salt flat offices moved to their present site, bringing about the rapid urbanisation of the former Torrevieja. Today Torrevieja produces about a million tons of salt, mostly exported, making it the prime European salt producer.
