Up until the 1970s, Torrevieja had a railway line, the birth and decline of which was related to the salt-mining industry. The Vía Verde is a 7 kilometre route that goes from the old railway station to the edge of the nearby town of Los Montesinos. Here you can go trekking, bike riding, etc.; it is a new way of enjoying the old railway line that used to transport the famous Torrevieja salt.
