Callosa d'En Sarriá's curious name comes from Bernat d'En Sarriá, the first Christian feudal lord of Boronía, an area of Moorish influences and agriculture. He subsequently gave ownership to the Bou family, then the village became the property of Conde Orgaz, a descendant of the famous protagonist of the burial painted by El Greco that hangs in the Church of St Thomas in Toledo. The historical disputes regarding its ownership and the limits of its borders are due to its privileged access to water - Callosa is situated between the Guadalest and Algar Rivers, and is 3 km from the impressive waterfalls of the Algar River. The abundance of water and the mild climate have enabled produce such as almonds and vines to be cultivated in traditional terraces. Tropical produce such as kiwis, mangoes and especially medlar are also grown. Today Callosa is closely involved in the tourist market due to its proximity to Benidorm and Altea. It is a beautiful white and ochre coloured town with an old town centre where visitors can see an Old Quarter surrounding a unique church in whose vestibule a medieval arch is still visible. The remnants of the medieval walls can be seen, especially in the Plaça del Castell, where the feudal lord residence is located.

Calpe In the thirties writers such as Hemingway spent their summers in Calpe. Calpe's first hotel was established next to the Peñón Rock: the Ifach Parador. The Morro del Toix and the Peñón de Ifach mark the extremities of Calpe's bay. The Peñón de Ifach (=north in Phoenician) is the symbol of Calpe and, by extension, of the Costa Blanca. It is the highest rock in the entire Mediterranean and divides Calpe's shoreline in two. The limestone mass is 332 metres high and penetrates 1 kilometre into the sea, forming a first-rate geological feature. Since 1987, a Natural Park has preserved its unique ecological treasures such as the Ifach carnation. Prehistoric, Iberian, Phoenician and Roman remains have been found immediately next to the Peñón and on the isthmus which links it to the coast. At the foot of the Peñón are the 'Baños de la Reina' (literally, The Queen's Baths) that, in reality, was the site of a Roman 'factory' for the drying and salting of fish. There are 11 kilometres of sandy beaches and coves, like the one at La Manzanera where there are three buildings designed by Ricardo Bofill, and the Les Urques cove where scuba diving and fishing are possible. Calpe's attractions have made the village a tourist destination of note for both national and international visitors.

Denia, the capital of the Marina Alta, is a modern cosmopolitan city offering both visitors and residents a range of services. It owes its current import-ance to its being the historical city of the region, a city that was known in medieval times as the Marquesado de Dénia. Its name derives from the Latin name Dianium; Daniya was its Islamic name. The city experienced its period of urban and cultural glory when it became an independent Taifa following the division of the Caliphate of Córdoba during the 11th century. The historical centre of Denia contains the symbol of the city, its castle. The commercial centre is located in the calle Marqués de Campos and the adjacent streets. Dénia is a coastal city located to the north of the province of Alicante and has a 20-km coastline, made of small, beautiful coves. To the north there are the fine sandy beaches of Les Marines and Les Bovetes and the shingle beaches of Les Deveses and L' Almadrava (shingled) beaches which are craggy and rocky; to the south is the Les Rotes beach. The mild temperature, the annual average being 18º C, means that it is a pleasant place to stay. A monument was erected to the climate in the eighties. In the surrounding area there are Gothic ruins from the period of the Conquest and caves where potholing is carried out.

Els Poblets results from the combination of two small villages Setla-Mirarrosa and Miraflor, which in 1971 became Miraflor.The village was originally a Moorish farmstead belonging first to the Marquis of Dénia and then to the Condado de Parcent. The villages were traditionally linked to El Verger and, until very recently, were still part of its parish. When combined these are small villages which barely exceed one thousand inhabitants; their major attraction lies in the surrounding green landscape dotted with orange groves and a small area of coast where you can go underwater fishing. The area includes several residential housing estates where expatriate residents live all year round.

Finestrat Berber pirates used to attack Mediterranean coasts burning houses and taking prisoners. This is the origin of the watchtowers dotted along Alicante's coastline, and the reason why a section of Finestrat's coast is known as La Cala as it was land used for coastal defences. This historical fact, together with the nearby impressive Puig Campana massif, provides the peaceful town of Finestrat with a unique character. The town describes itself as representing both 'sea and mountain'. Today it is a town that combines agriculture with the service and tourism sector. The town has preserved the traditional features of a Mediterranean town and relaxing walks can be enjoyed in the area around the Church and to the Hermitage of the Remedio, constructed on a former Moorish castle, which provides a magnificent vantage point over the Marina Baixa.


Gata owes its name to the Gorgos River, also called the Jalón, which passes through the village before arriving at Jávea. The village has traditionally been associated with agriculture and esparto craftwork. The production of objects made out of esparto and palm is the source of wealth and prosperity; the village is located at the crossroads with the N-332 and the regional roads leading to Jávea and Dénia. Crafts shops display their products on the streets, and sometimes the highways, to the surprise of curious visitors, and make a picturesque sight. The houses, white with ivory lintels, give the village its regional character. The Church dates from 1535; the same year the village became an independent municipality from Dénia.
