TEULADA - MORAIRA THE REALLY " PEARL OF COSTA BLANCA"
SITUATED BETWEEN VALENCIA AND ALICANTE
The Costa Blanca region of Spain has one of the best climates in the world, enjoying over 300 days of sunshine in an average year. One of the most beautiful towns in the Costa Blanca is Teulada-Moraira. Nestling between the mountains and the sea, the wonderful climate of this specific area boasts an average yearly temperature of 20°
Looking firstly at Moraira, it was not that long ago that holidaymakers discovered this sleepy little fishing village, with its variety of gorgeous stony and sandy beaches that can be found both in the town itself and along the coastline. At that time, the villagers´ main livelihood was fishing, and their main diet consisted of eating the fish they caught. What used to be the fishermens´ storage huts have now been converted into picturesque houses. One of the reasons why many inhabitants of Teulada moved down to Moraira was work related; they decided to move to the coast for, if you live by the sea, you become a fisherman.
Today the system remains as it has been for hundreds of years; the fishermen go to sea in the early hours of the morning to catch the produce, which is sold later that day by auction at the traditional fish market. This market has grown over the years, and is now one of the most important fish markets in the Costa Blanca region.
The native people, who as all the travel brochures will tell you are renowned for their friendliness, soon realised the potential of their small fishing village and have changed their lifestyle accordingly. Nowadays a wide variety of opportunities exist for holidaymakers and, with a coastline stretching approximately 8km, this area has a lot to offer.
Turning for a moment from Moraira, let us look at the original section of Teulada town, a picturesque village located approximately 6km inland. Wander in the shade of olive trees, where vineyards lie alongside plantations of oranges and almonds, and the heady aroma of pine sap emanates from the abundant pine trees typical of this idyllic region, and you could quickly lose yourself in the beauty of the surroundings.
Whenever you go walking around Teulada, you will always pass by the Riu-Raus. These are arched constructions where the locally picked raisins are laid out to dry. The dried fruit is used, amongst other things, to make the sweet local drink Moscatel. If you were to suddenly see a donkey and cart accompanied by a farmer with a straw hat pass by a Riu-Rau, you would feel sure that you had stepped back in time TEULADA. Teulada is a town of the district of La Marina Alta known for the beauty of its beaches, the important tourist resort of Moraira and the quality of the local wines. The inland keeps great treasures worth visiting throughly. Erected upon the Pla de Feliu the high bell-tower of the church stands out in between the harmonious urban complex. The urban area is constructed around the Church-Fortress, which is full of details taking us back in history.
At the end of the 18th century, when Teulada was a farming village, crops were transported by sea, embarking from the naturalports. As time went by, locals started to settle down near their working places, dedicating themselves to fishing. Those small houses where the tackle used to be kept, started to be enlarged until they were converted into real fishing houses, at the same time that this activity was gaining importance. This way how the foundations of what was to be known as an important tourist resort, called today Moraira, were laid.
...Fiestas in Teulada-Moraira
The two most important Fiestas are; San Vicente Ferrer, which takes place on the first Monday after Easter Monday, and Moors & Christians, which is held the second weekend in June. San Vicente Ferrer is a 10 day religious fiesta to celebrate the Patron Saint of Teulada. However, the Spanish are masters at combining solemnity and la dolce vita, and if you follow the delicious aroma wafting around town you are likely to find a giant paella being served up somewhere. Everyone is invited, so just join in and enjoy yourself!The history of Spanish occupation is celebrated by the week long Moors & Christians fiesta. Theatrically presented in impressive costumes, the townspeople are separated into Moorish and Christian filas (groups), and hold marches and mock battles that take place at various times and places throughout the village. The high point of this fantastic fiesta is the firework display and procession on the last day. Whichever fiesta you watch, you will always be made welcome and encouraged to join in the fun, dancing and laughing alongside both participants and spectators. One thing is for sure - you should visit a Spanish fiesta at least once in your lifetime to get a feel for what is probably the most enjoyable aspect of the Spanish way of life.
