Quesada is a town located 11 kilometres inland from the coastal resort of Torrevieja on the southern Costa Blanca, Spain. Ciudad Quesada (Ciudad is the Spanish word for city) is a modern development, that was built as a result of a dream by local man Justo Quesada Samper.
His dream to build where people could prosper and live in harmony, began to materialise in 1972, as construction of this new city began near the historic town of Rojales. Since its beginnings Quesada has developed, grown and prospered and has one of the largest ex-pats communities on the Costa Blanca made up mainly of people from the UK but also many Skandinavians, Dutch, Germans and Russians.
The main entrance to Quesada is through the iconic arched gateway where you will find the main, but not the only, commercial area for the city, with lots of cafes, restaurants, bars, banks and shops.
Towards Rojales you will find the La Marquesa Golf Course, a popular Par 72, 18-hole course (more information about the Golf Course and other sporting and recreational amenties can be found on this web site).
There is also an excellent water park open from the first Monday of June until the 15th of September. 10.30am until 7pm with plenty of free parking, free sun beds and a cafe. A little difficult to find on your first visit but well worth effort if you have young children.
Close by are the beautiful beaches of Torrevieja, Guardamar and La Mata and also in the immediate area is the Parque Natural de La Mata y Torrevieja, a protected nature reseve and important conservation area.
Quesada has so much to offer with its close proximity to both Alicante and Murcia airports, both approcimately a 30 minute drive away. The convenience of English being spoken in all the bars, restaurants and shops but Spain as the Spanish know it right on the doorstep. Come and see for yourselves.
