The town of Callosa de Segura is located north-west of Orihuela on the CV900, it is a municipality of Valencia (Spain) in the Alicante province and another of the Vega Baja (low fertile valley) towns. The 2005 census attributes Callosa de Segura with a population of just under 17,000 and an area of 25 km2,
The town is dominated by the huge Callosa de Segura mountains standing behind it, and some of the houses of the town creep up the side of the mountain together with various crops high up on terraced slopes.
A super vantage point to view the town is from the Sant Roque Hermitage which stands high above the town as if guarding it, and again way above the hermitage is the castle of Callosa in a seemingly inaccessible place which challenges the imagination - why and how could a castle be built in such a difficult place (it would certainly have been an easy place to defend!).
The hermitage was built (1579 - 1798) in honour of the patron saint of Callosa de Segura - Saint Roque, it is said that Saint Roque appeared on the spot where the hermitage is built.
Looking down from the Saint Roque Hermitage it is easy to spot the blue domed roof of the impressive Saint Martin’s Church, dating from the 16th - 18th Centuries. The chapel of the church contains some important pieces of gold work by Miguel de Vera (16th Century).
The original Town Slaughterhouse built in 1929 is now renovated and houses a History Museum of the Town .
The old part of the town, just below the hermitage is best seen by walking as the streets are very narrow and difficult to negotiate by car.
Callosa de Segura can be easily reached via the A-7 (E15) motorway, junction 79, or from the AP-7 motorway, junction 733.
