The origin of the name of Torrevieja (in Valencian Torrevella), goes back to the time of the reconquest, in reference to the different compounds of Tower descriptive adjectives and allusion to the existence of watchtowers against the attacks of the Spanish East Coast.
Therefore, in the case of Torrevieja, had two defensive towers and surveillance located specifically in the area of Cabo Cervera, where the most important were Torrelamata which gives name to a town of Torrevieja and the torre-vieja that would be next to the cala scalloped and from which is derived the origin of the name of the city. In those days, Torrevieja was nothing more than a set of towers lookouts and houses in which lived the salt workers.
It was in the 1802 when Carlos IV decided to move the administration of the Royal Saltworks next to the old Tower, and so is as the name of the municipality comes from the old lookout tower, or old, located in the Eras de la Sal, an old salt Pier.
Torrevieja is a coastal town in the South of the province of Alicante. Within the region of the Vega Baja. Municipal area borders in the North with Guardamar del Segura, to the West with Rojales and Benijofar, Southwest with Montesinos and San Miguel de Salinas and to the South with the beaches of Orihuela.
