    Torre de La Mata

    The old Roman Dock is the town's landmark located at the Plaza Embarcadero. This ancient tower which was rebuilt in 14th century was used in the Middle Ages to warn the local inhabitants of impending attacks by Barbary pirates. From here you have a fantastic view of the coast until Santa Pola. During clears days, Tabarca island is also in sight.

    This area is located in a secluded area of Torrelamata. The square , thus the name, boasts an old olive tree and some implements for pressing, producing and transporting La Mata's local wine. The work of Mauel Pizzana which is the image of Sacred Heart of Jesus occupies a space of this area.

    The square is located not far from the beach and very close to the town. A nice area ( about a hectare) with a variety of plants and tress growing, children's play ground and boccia grounds( a sort of bowling)...a pity i can't play this game because i do not know the rules :"> I love this park because of the stray cats cared by a generous old lady.

    If you are based in La Mata, you can access the paseo through Paseo de La Mata going south. It starts from where Barlovento Restaurant is located(south-end) further along the seaside reaching Cala del Moro. A fantastic area!

    Waves watching.....

    Here in Costa Blanca, mostly in this region, the climate is stable. Unless there is a sudden deterioration in the weather. Sometimes, there are just huge waves here without rains or strong winds. It is fascinating to watch this nature though the red flag is up and swimming is absolutely prohibited.

    Cabo Cervera

    Take time and have a walk through the promenade going to the south end. You'll enjoy the beautiful sea views or do a little shopping or just quench your thirst in one of the restaurants or even have your meals.

    Exploring the town's natural reserve....

    Another thing of interest is to visit the PARQUE LA MATA & LAGOONS due to its botanical diversity, comprising shrub and tree vegetation typical of the salt marshes, and bird activity especially the Flamingos. Some invertebrates are also present here like the Artemia Salina(sea monkey).This reserve is situated in the south of the province of Alicante close to Torrevieja. A great place for a morning and afternoon walk under shady healthy trees till to its lagoons.
    It is easy to access

    Parque Molino del Agua

    A good area to have some walks , or do your jogging or any other sport activity. We usually did ours before the sun rises and in the evening. There is a magnificent view towards the sea from the highest point
    A meeting place for those who have pet dogs.

    Here are the barbecues where you can cook the meat they gave to you.

    Natural Park de la Mata Torrevieja

    by Carmela71 Written Jan 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The lagoons of Torrevieja and La Mata will welcome you at the entrance, as the road goes in between them.
    Some areas are still working salt lakes, and sometimes when they are working we had been told the smell is awful.
    Due to the characteristics it became Natural protected park
