Discover Torrevieja with Shopping Center Habaneras
Do you know why the Habaneras oral singing became popular in Torrevieja?
One of the ways in which Torrevieja maintains its history and origins is through the most universal language: music.
In the Eras de la Sal since 1777, salt was stored from the salt mines that were transported in barges to the ships that waited in the bay to carry what was white gold to places like Cuba. The sailors, when they returned, did it loaded with tobacco and sugar, but also with songs full of love and nostalgia under sweet and evocative rhythms that they had learned in Cuban ports.
These songs were transmitted orally and over the years consolidated and popularized among the torrevejenses and torrevejenses.
