Calasparra is a municipality in the province of Murcia with more than 10.000 inhabitants. The municipality is best known for its rice fields, the Sanctuary of Virgen de la Esperanza and its caves. You can also go rafting on the Rio Segura.
When you prepare a rice dish, it is also important that you use the correct rice. If you want to prepare paella the real way then you only do that with rice from Calasparra. The water from the mountains slows down the maturation of the grain and this influences the taste and quality of the rice. Rice production in this region has been going on since the 14th century.
