Teulada is a small coastal town on Spain’s Costa Blanca, located 3 km north from Junction 63 of the A7 E-15 toll motorway on the N-332 coast road. The nearest towns to Teulada are Moraira, Benissa and Benitachell.
Teulada’s historic quarter, in the interior of the province of Alicante, is surrounded by a green landscape filled with vineyards, a crop that reflects the agricultural tradition of this municipality, and is part of its identity. Surrounded by a wall in the old times, Teulada’s city centre is dominated by the church of Santa Catalina, a very beautiful example of Flamboyant Gothic architecture, erected to honour the patron saint.
Things to see in Teulada
The market in Teulada is every Wednesday morning where you can buy your fruits and vegetables, handbags, honey, local crafts and souvenirs to take back home. Teulada does not have any beaches because it is set inland off the coast but if you are using Teulada as a base for your vacation or holiday then the beach resort of Moraira is just 4km away with very good beaches.
The town council of Teulada has passed laws in the past to limit the height of tall buildings unlike the skylines of Benidorm and Calpe, to protect the pine trees covering the valleys all the way to Moraira. Agriculture is still of great importance to Teulada as the terraced slopes are dominated by olives, almonds, grapes, lemons and oranges but nowadays tourism and construction form the backbone of the local economy.
Teulada is still very Spanish with its heritage and traditions although many Dutch, German and English people have made Teulada their new home. Teulada is also known for its firework displays, one of the best on the coast.

Alicante Airport (IATA: ALC, ICAO: LEAL), also known as Alicante-Elche Airport, is currently the fifth largest airport in Spain and is the gateway to the Costa Blanca resort region, serving both the Valencia Community and the Region of Murcia.

Irish low-cost airline Ryanair used the airport as a hub since 2007 but decided to close it in November 2008 following a dispute over subsidies by the airport authorities.
