Inhabited since prehistory, taken over by Moors, then Christians, a former farming village in the 18th century and a tourist centre since the 1980s, Teulada-Moraira is one of the most diverse destinations in Costa Blanca.

Moraira is located within the municipality of Teulada; the two are usually linked together and referred to as Teulada-Moraira, yet their difference is stark. While Moraira is a coastal paradise, especially loved by British pensioners, Teulada is rather urban and Spanish-based.

The entire municipality, however, has a 55 per cent of the residency made up by foreigners; the international appeal of the town was sparked in the 1970s.

The town has roots dating back to prehistory, evidence of which can be found in the historic Cova de la Cendra archaeological site on Cap d´Or. Human habitation is traced back to the Upper Palaeolithic era, and was later taken over by Moors, whose influence can still be seen today in the vibrant local architecture. 

Transformed from a small farming village to a centre of international tourism, Teulada-Moraira began hosting worldwide visitation since the 1970s, when its economy started to boom, and continues to be in high demand.

Today, the town hosts more than 11,000 residents; increasing at least three-fold during the summer. With approximately 300 sunny days per year and 1,000 hectares of vineyards, Teulada-Moraira remains to be the favourite spot of British, German, Dutch and French tourists and residents.
