While staying in Villa Martin we decided to make use of our hire car and visit the city of Orihuela an easy 40 minutes drive away. We found plenty of street parking for 1 Euro right near the tourist information office by just following the brown cultural heritage signs. Pick up a street map and it basically just following the road and it's packed with museums and religious buildings. The Catedral del Salvador is so impressive be sure to have your camera. Take in the lovely Ornate palaces along your way and be sure to visit the Spanish poet Miguel Hernandez museum dedicated to his life and work. Walk up the steps beside the ornate fountain, the Pozo del Cremos, which marks the site of 19th century water works. You will be rewarded by lovely views over the city. Finish off with a lovely cool drink in one of the many pretty plazas. Without a doubt a very worthwhile visit.

Orihuela is a great city to visit starting with the lovely Cathedral. It is beautiful within and without. A typical catholic edifice with all the baroque ornamentation one would expect. The city itself is delightful full of history and beautiful buildings. The old Seminary is also well worth a visit with lovely azulejos in the refrectory. It is a delight just to wander round the old town admiring the the lovely buildings Gand gardens.

Small but perfectly formed with some interesting pieces especially the choir and the organ. The cloisters provide a pleasant place to stroll. Be careful about visit times-closed Mondays and on Sundays you need to time carefully pre or post mass

A good church to visit, we especially like the architecture of the cloister buildings.
Orihuela is blessed with several fine gothic or baroque style churches, all worth a visit.

Orihuela City is well worth a visit. There is lots of history there & the Catedral is beautiful & a must. There is a small charge but don't let it put you off.

We were here for a short while and so enjoyed, not only the architecture, but also the tremendous feel to the Cathedral.
Worth a visit.

The cathedral opens out onto a small plaza, but is surrounded by buildings making it difficult to gage its size. With a single unadorned tower, the facade bears some painted markings. The domes are difficult to see when circumnavigating the outside.

Inside, the sanctuary is dark. Large dark oil paintings adorn most of the walls. Immediately on entry is the enclosed choir, which is locked to visitors. A small seating area of wooden pews have a rail along the center aisle. The Sacrament was in a chapel in the rear. Off to the side in the rear beside the ambulatory was a room displaying the Treasury. Several impressive pieces are included.

Grand and beautiful cathedral with a very opulent interior. There is a 2 euro admission charge which I haven't had to pay before. But it's well worth the small charge of course.
