Living in Guardamar del Segura

Do you want to live in Guardamar del Segura a green experience at the top of your lungs? Located between Torrevieja and Santa Pola and 25 kilometers from the International Airport of Alicante, it is part of the region of the Vega Baja of Alicante, of which it stands out with its eleven kilometers of sand, spread over eight beaches with the best quality of tourist services and, especially, with its 800 hectares of coastal dune forest, which occupy 80% of the territory of the municipality and make it a green lung unparalleled in all of Mediterranean Europe since its reforestation by Francisco Mira and Botella since 1900. Guardamar del Segura houses, like all the towns of the Vega Baja of Alicante, a medieval irrigation system with a rich and fertile orchard in the final stretch of the Segura River surrounded by large mountains such as Montcaio, l’Estany and El Molar. Living in Guardamar del Segura is to live the sea in all its intensity, with the Puerto Deportivo and Pesquero Marina of Las Dunas, small fishing port of great importance next to its neighbor Santa Pola, which has a large number of water sports and a magnificent fish market fishing, where you can buy one of the best prawns of the Mediterranean arch, with part of the Parque Natural de Lagunas de La Mata y Torrevieja within its territory, saline ecosystem that hosts thousands of migratory birds every year and the mouth of the river Segura, that after 325 kilometers dies on the waters of Guardamar del Segura. Living in Guardamar del Segura is to live its history and heritage, linked to the Mediterranean Sea, where Phoenicians, Iberians, Romans and Arabs have been fighting since time immemorial natural resources from the garden and the sea, people who left their mark on culture and the urban structure of the town, devastated by earthquakes in 1829 and invaded by the sands of the dunes at the end of the 19th century, giving rise to a reforestation with 14 km of contraduna and configuring the current unique aspect of Guardamar del Segura. This process of reforestation gave rise to one of the most important singular spaces in the city, such as the Casa-Museo Ingeniero Mira that joins the Museo Arqueológico Municipal of Guardamar, where the famous Dama of Guardamar, contemporary to that of Elche, is found. Thus, Guardamar hosts a special Phoenician past with the port city of La Fonteta and the small Cabezo de l’Estany fortress, Islamic with the Rábita del Montcaio and the Rábita califal (the only Umayyad monastery of its kind) and Christian, with the 13th century castle from which a large part of the city can be seen. From the most recent past we find, linked to the fertile land of the Guardamar and to the traditional agriculture of the area, structures such as the Molino Harinero of San Antonio, the canal and the Puertas de Riegos de Levante that regulated the surplus waters of the Segura River, the Puente de Hierro, which saved the riverbed to connect the 332 national road and the sénia del riu sec, now a cultural space and formerly a water lift for animal traction. Living in Guardamar del Segura is sport, gastronomy and party without equal, among which the Moors and Christians stand out with their representation of the legend of L’Encantà, where the Dama de Guardamar is proclaimed and crowned, the Bonfires of San Juan, and the festivities in honor of Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Fátima, patron saint of the orchard of Guardamar del Segura (May 13) and Nuestra Señora del Rosario, saint of Guardamar, worshiped every October 7 with traditional dances and dances and commemorating the founding of The Brotherhood of the Rosary in 1610. On the other hand, the gastronomy of Guardamar del Segura attracts us to all kinds of products from the orchard, to Mediterranean fish such as sea breams, groupers, sea bass … and, especially, shrimp and ñora, of which is celebrated, in June, a Gastronomic Week of Ñora and Langostino recognized internationally. Guardamar del Segura has mild Mediterranean temperatures, which makes it ideal for practicing all kinds of collective sports in unbeatable facilities such as the Palau de Sant Jaume, the Sports Center and Municipal Pool and even the Manel Estiarte heated pool, for water sports such as the Guardamar Sailing School, where you can practice light sailing and start windsurfing and aerial sports such as aeromodellism, with one of the most important tracks in the Valencian Community.
