Callosa de Segura - Costa Blanca - Spain

Callosa de Segura: A sizeable town lying to the north-east of Orihuela, Callosa de Segura, is another of the Vega Baja towns which is well worth a visit if you are in the southern Costa Blanca area.

St Martin's ChurchCallosa de Segura has a population of around 17,000 and a municipal area of 25 square kilometres, it is overlooked by the Callosa de Segura mountains, under which the town is nestled.

View the town from the San Roque Hermitage, which gives a good vantage point, look up the mountain to see the ruins of Callosa Castle built by the Moors during their occupation of Spain. The San Roque Hermitage took over 200 years to build and was begun in 1579.

Other places to visit in Callosa de Segura include the St Martin’s Church, with its charismatic blue domed roof, the Hemp & Agricultural Museum, the Fiesta Museum, the Holy Week Museum and the Archaeological Museum (all museum housed in the old Town Slaughterhouse).

The street around the church and the hermitage are narrow, so walking is recommended (I know because I made the mistake of driving there!).
