The village of Rojales in Spain is a traditional farming village, where the lifestyle is easy going and very laid back. Situated on the Segura River on the Costa Blanca, the town is only 16 miles (25km) from Alicante.
With its very pleasant climate, Rojales is ideal for leisurely walks or an afternoon merienda at the towns many quaint cafe's. The traveller can easily become at ease as he explores this laidback town. Much of Rojales lies in the fact that anytime is a safe time to walk, play and dine outside. The hurly burly of more commercial towns like Torrevieja, Guardamar, Elche, Alicante and Benidorm is a stark contrast to the slow and steady pace of this modest land. Here you can stroll the streets lined with restaurants, and have a glass of cold beer or red wine while munching on tapas.
Nevertheless, the town is never lacking in fun and merriment. As with all other towns on the Costa Blanca, Rojales has fiestas (festivals) to celebrate the feast days of their patron saints.
At present, there has been a major improvement in Rojales infrastructure. Residential housing estates have been constructed within the municipal district. Because of its affordability and peaceful atmosphere, the area has become very popular for Northern Europeans to reside in. The scenic tranquility of Rojales make it a destination worth going to.
