That's La Isla Tabarca :)
I first visited it about 16 years ago before they surfaced the roads and rebuilt the church.

Are you showing the island before the re-surfacing Martin,
or is another one to guess ?

That was a photo I took about 16 years ago of the island before they dressed it up.
Bit too tidy now, I think it had more charm then.
When we walked up from the boat first time we were there, there was a local sitting on a donkey & wearing a sombrero by the gate into the town, and I thought we'd landed in old Mexico.

It's not Torrellano, is it ?
I thought that was a miniature steam train ?

Yes it is Torrellano railway museum :)
It is open every Saturday from 4pm to 8pm and free when they also run their diesel engines, and on the second Sunday of each month they have a live steam engine from 10.30am to 1.30pm.
Quite an interesting place, some of the volunteers that run it speak English.
And a ride costs 1.50€ donation.

OK... Time for a harder one?
This place is one hour's travel from Torrevieja.

Time for some clues...
This small town is one of many in Spain to be named after a patron saint.
This particular saint was a 13 year old virgin girl who was martyrd in Barcelona in 303AD for refusing to recant her Christianity.
She was subject to 13 tortures including putting her in a barrel with knives stuck into it and rolling her down a street, having her breasts cut off, crucified on an X shaped cross and finally beheaded.
Nice people around then!

OK - don't expect anyone will have visited it, but it is Santa Eulalia near Sax.
The small village is now virtually completely abandoned but left as it was.
The building just past the church used to be the theatre and there is a window at ground level & when you look in it is still as it was.
Here's another couple of photos.
