Aspe Holiday and Tourist Information
The town of Aspe is located on the southern part of the Costa Blanca, approximately 30 minutes drive from the coast. With a population of 16,000 this is a well established community, and as a result there are a good selection of shops, restaurants and other facilities already in place; in addition to government managed amenities such as schools, doctors etc.
Though there is increased interest in the town it still remains unspoiled by tourism; having retained much of its inherent culture and atmosphere. The old town centre is a please to walk through, though its centre piece must be its central square; the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, featuring an interesting church and modern casino.
There are many fiestas (festivals) throughout Aspe’s calendar, some of which are a real spectacle and well worth a look. The cuisine is another major bonus, though mainly traditional Spanish fare; although international tastes are also catered for.
Aspe is also well known for its mild climate and the entire region enjoys sunshine for in excess of 320 days per year. The sun is at its hottest during the summer months, with temperatures rarely falling below 30°C (86°F). Winters are typically very mild with averages hovering around 18°C (64°F).
