Flamenco Dancing

There is a Spanish restaurant which cooks dishes typical of the Valencian region, one of which is paella cooked on a wood fire (to order), also rice with bogavant, fideau, grilled meats, fresh fish and very good home made desserts.

This restaurant is called Viva Espana and is situated off the N332 on the left hand side just before you arrive at Oliva in the direction of Valencia. It takes about 45 minutes drive from Moraira.

On Saturday nights and Sunday lunch the restaurant is transformed into a huge party room; there is an elevated stage and a spectacular display of Spanish Ballet with traditional Flamenco dancing at its best.

During July and August this floor show is also performed on Friday evenings.

There are special prices for group bookings up to a capacity of 300 people, also you can get quotes for weddings, communions, parties, business groups and family reunions.

Their telephone number is 96 2850018.

Moraira Sangria Recipe

There are many variations of this recipe, which basically follow this one – you can add more fruit or hard alcohol or soda – but remember it needs to be served ice cold, so allow plenty of time for chilling.

Makes about 2 pints


1 bottle dry full-bodied red wine 1 can fizzy orange, chilled 1 can fizzy lemon, chilled Spanish brandy – or any which is quite light Banana liqueur Cointreau 1 apple, chopped 1 pear, chopped 1 lemon, thinly sliced 1 orange, thinly sliced 1 tsp sugar 1 cinnamon stick Ice cubes


Put all the fruit pieces into a large jug, then pour over a generous amount of the banana liqueur, cointreau and brandy. Pour in the bottle of wine, and leave in the fridge to chill.

Once this is really cold, pour in the fizzy drinks and add the cinnamon and sugar. Mix in some ice cubes and it´s ready to serve.
