It has a long history. It saw action during the Moorish occupation. A strong earthquake in 1644 seriously damaged the fort and houses of the village, and during the War of the Spanish Succession, it again suffered serious damage from a mine explosion.

On its way there, it passes the town of Callosa d'en Sarria, located some 15kms from Benidorm and about the same distance from Altea, where it forms a series of roaring waterfalls, cascading down the rocks into natural pools. Known as   Les Fonts dé l`algar, the entire area is a nature reserve and as such protected.  Apart from the waterfalls, the nature reserve is a showcase for lush Mediterranean flora which is why it also contains a arboretum, open to visitors.

    A Day Trip to the Island of Tabarca

    Tabarca is the only inhabited island in the Region of Valencia and is located opposite the city of Alicante, 11 nautical miles offshore and near the Santa Pola headland.

It is approximately 1,800 metres long and measures some 400 metres across at its widest point.

    In the past, its shores were a refuge for Berber pirates and, in the 18th century, King Carlos III ordered the island to be fortified and a town built, in which to house several families of Genoese fishermen who were being held prisoner in the Tunisian city of Tabarka. The walls surrounding the town have been officially declared a Historical and Artistic Site and an Asset of Cultural Interest.
