Rojales is a small municipal town which includes the purpose built international village of Quesada and urbanisations of Pueblo Lucero, Doña Pepa, Pueblo Bravo and Lo Pepín.
Rojales has a charming village feel to it and sits on the banks of the River Segura. It is easy to wander around as you always come back to the river, with its large waterwheel and friendly ducks! Visit the Cuveas del Rodeo cave houses, these are used by local artists as their studios and are the site of the monthly craft market. Take a look around the museum in the church square and on a Thursday morning enjoy the popular market. You can follow the river along the walking and cycling path inland to neighbouring Formenterra or towards Guardamar on the coast. There is a municipal swimming pool for use during the summer, the Teatro Capital for plays and concerts and an iconic windmill with stunning views over the local area. There is also a Countryside Museum called Museo de la Huerta, which is located 2.5km north of the village.
The Parque Recorral was redeveloped in 2019. It has 5 artificial small lakes which are perfect for a walk and enjoying the wildlife as well as BBQ areas for use during the winter months and picnic benches and tables. You can also follow the well used but unmarked trails through the park. Click to view the EuroTourGuide Positive Place that was filmed in the Recorral Park during Covid.
Rojales Water Park, known as Parque Aquatico, was opened 1986 and has been providing great days out for families ever since. It is open every year during the summer and has a range of slides, pools, sun beds and parasols, restaurant, cafeteria, lawn area, picnic area (bring your own sandwiches!) and lots of free parking.
La Marquesa Golf Course was founded in 1989. It is a good course for players who are developing their experience, as the 18 holes are not too difficult but very enjoyable.
Ciudad Quesada is a modern village which has been growing in size since the 1970s. It is very popular with ex pats from all over Europe and is instantly recognisable by the grand entrance known as the Quesada Arches at the bottom of the high street. It has a large central square called the Plaza Blanca where the town hall is situated and the free to use municipal tennis courts are near by. The Hotel La Laguna has relaxing Spa facilities which are open to the public and there is the popular and well established Quesada Lawn Bowls Club. The high street is full of bars, cafes and restaurants, which offer international food and the Quesada Boulevard Commercial Centre has great views from the roof terrace. The village is a real hub and is especially busy in the mornings with people wandering around the shops and enjoying coffees.
