Orihuela is a territory with an identity that has been maintained over the centuries.
One of them has been gastronomy, a tangible element that forms part of the culture and which, as such, is an enormous tourist resource. As shown by our countless bars and restaurants where you can find typical dishes of greater roots, such as the famous rice and coast or the stew with balls, of Jewish origin.  Many of them have special products coming from the surroundings of the orchard or the palm grove. The artichoke, the palmito or the date are some examples.
The origin of products is also the nearby coastline of exquisite "seafood", which results in wonderful rice dishes, fried or grilled, as well as the typical salted fish.  The gastronomic route must be completed by including the traditional ovens and convents.  Without forgetting the confectioneries, where exquisite sweets such as "almojábanas", of Arab origin, or "pastel de gloria" (glory cakes) are made.  

The city is agricultural land, where its fertility has been exploited by diverse cultures over time.  The native artichoke, broccoli and citrus fruits that are exported all over Europe should be highlighted.
Using salt to preserve the fish, Salted fish were created. It is a technique with which all the salted fish of the majority of the Orihuela coast are elaborated.  It is usually eaten as an aperitif or as a starter for a main dish, with an intense flavour that is highly appreciated by the inhabitants of the region.
They are an important part of the local gastronomy.  Many products are produced highly recognized in the national territory.  In the confectionery of Orihuela the new kitchen is fused with the Arab tradition and of other cultures.
