The Ricote Valley is one of the most beautiful and undiscovered parts of the fertile irrigated plains around the River Segura.
The towns of Ricote, Ojós, Abarán, Blanca, Ulea,Villanueva del Segura and Archena, surrounded by fruit and citrus orchards, transport us to an ideal world. The town of Cieza is also close by.
The valley is a little known area with plenty of oranges, lemons, peaches, almonds, cherries and grapes. The hills of the area are dotted with date palms, cacti, small churches and ancient ruins. You feel like you are sometimes in the south of Morocco, sometimes in Mexico. Such environment continues to surprise, and within a half hour drive from Murcia. The villages are typically Spanish and all have their own festas.
There are plenty of traditional restaurants where you can taste local cuisine.
