Top 5 day trips if you’re on holiday in La Zenia. – Comaskey Properties

This is a Picturesque typical Spanish village set high on the mountains overlooking benidorm featuring incredible views and old mountain top church and the famous miniature museum. In fact a feature of the town is the miniature museums around every corner of the narrow streets. A trip up the mountain is worth it for the views alone.

Natural waterfalls and crystal ice cold water, perfect for those 35 Celsius sumerge temperatures- what more can you ask for. The public area is well manicured and maintained and considering its a bit of a trek away, it’s a very popular family day trip.

40 minutes south of la zenia you will find the city of Cartagena. Founded two thousand years ago, the city lived its heyday during the Roman Empire whose influence is everywhere. The port is now dominated by the Spanish navy and its not unusual to see a submarine with ‘the hood up’ when you arrive to the marina. Catamaran trips run on the hour and cost as little as 7euro often with a free beer included!

Caravaca de la cruz
This is the fifth holy city of Catholic Christianity dominated by the medieval castle of Santa Cruz. The legend of the holy cross, the festivals, relics and monuments were enough for pope John Paul to declare this unexpected gem a ‘Holy City’.

Leading on perfectly from the hold city is benidorm, a city more associated with extravagant shows, streets full of party goers, stag parties, hen nights and fun that goes on way too late into the night.
Meatloaf, take that, the drifters, girls aloud and Tina turner would be horrified to see the cover acts performing as them but for the rest if it, it is a great night out.

We have not mentioned, water parks, theme parks, football events or fiestas in this brief post – more to follow over the next number of weeks.
