Orba Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 13 photos

ORBA village

Nestled in the orange groves, and with views down the coast at Denia, it could be said Orba is in the perfect location. It has a nice mix of Spanish and ex-pats from other European countries. It has a nice villagey feel but isn't as tiny as some of the surrounding places.

ORBA Fiestas + Events

As with all Spanish villages, ORBA has it's fair share of Fiestas and cultural events. The main Fiesta which includes bull-running through the streets is normally around the last week of July. Aswell as the bull-running there will be bands and giant paellas. There is also a Christmas Fayre each year which is normally at the weekend of the 1st or 2nd week of December. And of course there are various other fiestas throughout the year, and improptu ones whenever there is Spanish Sporting success, eg: World Cup, European Championships, Formula 1, Wimbledon etc.
