This village is located in the Marina Alta region, between Tormos, Pego, Vall de Laguart, Murla, Alcalalí and Benidoleig. It has a remarkable Moorish past, as it was a village with a long tradition dedicated to agriculture. Even today there are still vestiges of that period and traces of that past remain in its craftsmanship. Although after the Moorish expulsion, Orba was left uninhabited.
Nowadays it is a small village of little more than 2000 inhabitants, who depend mainly on tourism, although in this town agriculture is still important, as well as ceramic crafts.
Among the most interesting buildings are the 19th century parish church and the Castellet, of which only a few ruins remain on a hill of the same name. The Fang Museum is dedicated to the local pottery industry which has a long tradition.
