Rojales, a few miles
from Ciudad Quesada, is a typical Spanish small village
where life rolls along at their pace rather than being caught up in the mad,
hurly burly of more commercially orientated towns like Torrevieja, Guardamar, Elche, Alicante and Benidorm. Here you can stroll the streets popping into
restaurants for tapas or just a cold beer or a glass of local wine.
As with all other towns on the Costa Blanca
they have their market each week (Thursdays) and fiestas for celebrating their Saints days.
Much of Rojales' charm is the fact that you can safely walk the town at anytime
without being accosted by vendors.
Close to the town is the La Marquesa golf and
country club with its 18 hole course set in a valley through the mountain sides.
The hills around the area are full of orange, lemon and almond groves.
On the outskirts of town is a bypass that
gives access to the A7 taking you to Oriheula, Cartagena, Crevillente and many
other of the Costa Blancas major towns.
The other side of the town leads to the N322
which takes you along the coast down to Cabo Roig, La Manga and Cartegna.
