Discover the Moorish heritage amid romantic winding streets of BLANCA
Blanca, one of the six villages of the famous Ricote Valley, is undoubtedly one of
the most undiscovered Spanish destinations in the world. Beaches on the Costa Calida
of Murcia are remarkably well-known due to the elegance of their visitors, but we
should not forget that the heart Murcian village of Blanca has many centuries of
history and, before being a, rural tourist, destination, this fascinating area was
a typical moorish town. Therefore, if you are staying in one of the hotels on the
Murcian coast or plan to see it on your next vacation, we recommend you to learn
more about Blanca, especially the old quarter.
The Valle de Ricote -Ricote Valley- was the last Moorish redoubt in Spanish Levante.
This is one of the most beautiful and undiscovered parts of the fertile irrigated
plains around the River Segura. The villages of Abaran, Blanca, Ojós, Ricote, Ulea
and Villanueva del Segura, surrounded by fruit and citrus orchards, transport us
to an ideal world inside Spain.
The purpose of this web site is to introduce you to this undiscovered place.
