More than 450 people have enjoyed the different guided tours offered by Orihuela’s tourist department during the months of March and April and the department has recently released the itinerary for May.

 

Most of the previous routes are still in place as well as several new historically significant routes, such as the Miguel Hernández: Vida y Obra route, with details about the famous poet, the Modernista route, the Nordic Walking through the Norias Gemelas (twin water wheels) and the Legado Andalusí route, which explains the link between the Palmeral de Orihuela and the north of Africa.

 

The free guided tours are scheduled to take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from May 1 until May 29. The routes are programmed in the mornings, between 9.30 am and 12 pm, and in the afternoons, at 7 pm and 7.15 pm.
