Over 15,000 families from all over Europe.
The Ciudad Quesada development project commenced in 1972, thanks to the ambitious dream of the founder, Don Justo Quesada Samper: to build, from the ground up, a city to encompass the growing amount of residential tourists that the Costa Blanca was receiving.
Thousands of European citizens supported the first great project of the founder's company, making it a true model of residential planning, with forward thinking amenities, unthinkable at the time, such as a 9 hole golf course and an airport for light aircraft.
Now, in the 21st century, Ciudad Quesada is a national reference, one of the first developments in Spain, with over 15,000 homes built on 10 million slqre metres of land, with areas still in development. It also has an impressive offer of services and amenities that are available all year round: 9 banks, large supermarkets, two health centres, a petrol station, a water park, 5 small supermarkets, town hall offices, a school, a post office, bars, restaurants and the La Marquesa golf course.
The cordial atmosphere between the thousands of residents, from a miriad of nationalities, has strengthened their collective character. It is, in fact, the only development that celebrates its own local Fiesta every August, with the help of the Rojales town hall.
