About Denia

This small town lies at the northernmost point of the province of Alicante, 2,460ft above sea level on the slopes of Montgo. It is famous for its Fiesta, which takes place from mid-July to mid-August. It was originally founded by the Phoenicians; the Greeks knew it as Hemeroskopeion and the Romans, for whom it had much significance, as Dianium, after the temple of Diana there. The Visigoths made it an Episcopal seat and the Moors, the Capital of a Kingdom. It later became the capital of a duchy, under the Dukes of Lerma, one of whom was the chief minister to King Philip III. They are, however, few reminders left of the city’s distinguished past.

Cultural Denia - Things to do

Citadel – Perched above the town with a splendid view over the Bay of Valencia. Among the ruins are both Roman and Arab remains. The French used it as a base during the Napoleonic Wars.

Also worth seeing: Les Roques, in the most picturesque quarter of the city, close to the remains of the Castle. It has become an arts and crafts centre, along with the Baix la Mar, an area near the harbor. There are some interesting 18C buildings in the Plaza de los Caidos (square of the fallen) e.g. the church of Santa Maria and the town hall. On the steps leading up to the castle you can see two Roman alters.

Environs: On the bluff near Las Rotas there are caves which are accessible only from the sea. Two hours walk will get to the Pueblo Iberico, in the Sierra de Montgo, the site of the remains of an Iberian settlement dating back to the 7-8C B.C



Wherever you are in Denia you will enjoy the impressive backdrop of the Montgo massif, a 2,150 hectare mountain range between Denia and Xabia. In 1987 the Montgo was declared an official nature reserve and is home to an interesting variety of flora, fauna and wildlife including gulls, eagles, eagle owls, falcons and kestrels. Among the mammals living there are mice, rabbits, foxes, badgers and weasels. You can also find lizards and horseshoe whip snakes.

It's peak stands 753m above sea level and on a clear day you can see Ibiza.

Denia is also the gastronomy capital of the Costa Blanca with more than 300 restaurants serving traditional Mediterranean rice dishes and fish straight off of the fishermens' boats. the tasty red Denia prawns are considered to be the best in the world and fishing boats come in daily with a wide range of fresh seafood.

Denia is great for shopping too and thousands of bargain hunters flock to the Monday market for clothes, accessories and household items. On Fridays there is a colourful fruit and vegetable market. In the Summer at the Cervantes Esplanade you can snap up some souvenirs, handmade jewellery, leather goods and much more at the craft market.

For water sports lovers, Denia bay is the perfect spot for learning and practising, with its renowned sailing, diving, canoeing and rowing schools, which are run by professional instructors and equipped with the latest facilities to guarantee pupils' safety.

At Denia Port you can set sail for the Balearic Islands and reach Ibiza in 2 hours or you can enjoy a half-day excursion on a catamaran or take a boat to the neighbouring towns of Xabia or Altea.

Denia also has an impressive marina where you can charter a yacht or simply take a stroll and admire the many luxury vessels moored there.

Inland you can choose between horse-riding, tennis, squash, cycling, aerobics, shuttleball, floorball and the regional handball game Pelota Valenciana. Golf lovers will enjoy a round of golf at Denia's La Sella Marriott course or the Oliva Nova course close by.

Denia

Denia is as busy by night as it is by day. This is not an all night club land like Benidorm but the hundreds of bars and restaurants, many with live entertainment in the summer months, ensure that the town's more energetic visitors are kept amused until the small hours. It's also a town big on fiestas and there are some spectacular ones at regular intervals throughout the year - so if you want to party Spanish-style, book your holiday around one of the main fiestas, listed below.

One of Denia's biggest "parties" takes place between March 16th - 19th. This is the fiesta of the "Fallas" when huge papier mache effigies are erected on street corners throughout the town - then burnt to the ground in a spectacular bonfire party the like of which you could never hope to see in the UK (the authorities would never allow it!).

The effigies are beautifully designed and painted tableaux giving a satirical look at the main issues of the day - social, economic and political. The satire will pass over the heads of most tourists but the burning of these elaborate effigies is a sight to behold. Wander the streets and admire their beauty by day..then join the throng at night and watch them reduced to a heap of cinders!

June 20th-24th sees the "Fogueres de San Juan" fiestas with yet more burning - this time it's giant bonfires on the beach echoing the pagan rituals celebrating midsummer night. The Spanish simply love fun, fire, fiestas and fireworks.

From August 14th-16th there's the big Moors and Christians fiesta with spectacular street parades recalling the many hundreds of years of Moorish occupation of this part of Spain.

There are many other smaller religious feasts throughout the year which give Denia the chance to let its hair down, close the banks and shops and party the night away!

And even when it's not fiesta time, there's plenty of entertainment on offer. Check out the local English language newspaper the Costa Blanca News, published every Friday, for details of live entertainment in local bars and restaurants.

The Blue Bars, on the Javea - Denia seafront road, is a popular nightspot (call them on +34 965788799 to check what's on.) Paddy O'Connell's Irish pub (between the town centre and the castle) is a magnet for young music lovers and Guinness drinkers; the pub provides regular live entertainment with rock, soul and blues music.

In the summer months the long tourist stretch of Las Marinas, the coastal strip heading north out of Denia, bursts into life with live music, clubs and various shows until the small hours.

If it's international cabaret you're after, local travel agents organise regular trips down to Benidorm for the spectacular Benidorm Palace show, accompanied by dinner. You get a very slick show, a good dinner and your transport all for less than you'd pay for an average restaurant meal in the UK.
 
 Enjoying Nature In Denia
 
Denia is located just north of Javea. It is on the northern part of the Costa Blanca coast line, which runs from this city to Torrevieja in the southern part of the region. The weather in the area is similar to most of the Costa Blanca. The summers are hot and the winters are mild. There is little rain in the area. The city enjoys about 320 days of sunshine each year.

The city is located between two airports. Visitors can fly into either Alicante or Valencia airport. Each airport is about an hour and fifteen minute drive to the city. The best way to get around after arriving at the airport is with a car hire. This gives you the freedom to travel around the area. Car hire companies are available at both airports. Reserve your vehicle in advance, especially if you are travelling in the summer tourist season.

Things to do in Denia

Denia is a working town. While visiting here, you will be able to experience the authentic feeling of a Spanish town that you won’t get in the larger, more crowded tourist areas. If you want to spend some time enjoying the attractions in the larger cities, you can get around easily with a car hire.

Another benefit is the town doesn’t close down after the summer season. Many of the larger, tourist areas become like ghost towns at the end of the season. Stores, bars and restaurants close down. Here, you can enjoy shopping and restaurants all year long. This makes the city a good choice for off season vacations.

There is a lot to do for tourists as well in this city. There are two golf courses, Oliva Nova and La Sella for golf lovers. The weather in the area is nice enough for golf almost every day of the year. If you want a golf vacation, consider staying at the resort or close to it.

There are a few spas in the Denia area. A spa vacation is a great way to relax. You will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Spas are located near the mountain and near to the beach areas.

Although the night life in this city isn’t as busy as the larger discos in Benidorm, there is some night life. There are bars, restaurants and entertainment available. Many places are located near the beach. The night life isn’t as wild as in larger tourist areas, but at least you won’t have to fight the crowds and will still be able to enjoy music and dancing.

The castle in Denia was built in the sixteenth century. The castle is a landmark in the area. Tours are available throughout the year. From inside the castle, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding area.

Enjoying Nature in Denia

The towns of Denia and Javea are separated by Montgo mountain. This mountain has many walking routes. You can explore them on your own or go with a group on a walking tour. This is a great place to experience nature while on vacation. There are many great views of the water and town from this mountain.

Denia has 20 kilometres of beaches on the coastline. The beaches here are sandy and clean. They have received the Blue Flag award for good water quality and sand quality. You will enjoy relaxing on the beach and soaking in the sun.

A variety of water sports, including diving, snorkelling and wind surfing are available as well. There are some great areas for diving and snorkelling in the southern beach areas. Once is Les Rotes, a rocky area that is known for great snorkelling and diving. You will be able to view life under the water here

The Romans dedicated Denia to the goddess Diana, and turned its port into one of the most active in the Peninsula. Up to this day, Denia has not ceased to be visited.
The Muslim castle keeps many examples of its heritage at the Archaeological museum. The city also has remarkable monuments such as the church of Asunción, from the 18th century, with Renaissance and Baroque reredos; and the City Hall, which still has in its façade two memorial tablets from the ancient temple of Diana. The avenue of Marqués de Campo, the cosmopolitan setting for the festivities of Moors and Christians, is complemented by the fisherman's quarter, the most popular and gregarious area in town. Denia has a commercial port and a marina. In one of the piers, they celebrate the fiesta of "Bous a la mar" (bulls in the water), declared to be of National Tourist Interest.

Denia has a twenty-kilometre-long coastline, which presents fine sands in the northern part, yet steep and rocky sections to the south. The municipality has countless one-storey houses scattered around, with white façades, red-tiled roofs, and the typical porches from this region, called "riu-rau". We can access the Montgó Nature Reserve from the road that goes to Jávea, which passes through Las Rotas, and San Antonio Cape. A lighthouse sits on this cape, on top of a cliff that is 163 metres high.

Nature in Dénia
Dénia is surrounded by natural spaces of high ecological value. Between sea and mountain, sheltered by Mount Montgó and by the Mediterranean Sea and next to the Cape of Sant Antoni, Dénia breathes the sea air, smells of orange blossoms, Mediterranean flora, and nature.
The Mount Montgó Natural Park was officially declared as such in 1987 thanks to its landscape values, flora and fauna.
Mount Montgó extends forming the impressive Cape of Sant Antoni, which reaches the sea forming a 160 m. high cliff. At the feet of the cape there is the Cape of Sant Antoni Natural Reserve, with a high level of preservation, which gives it a high environmental scientific and ecological value.
The wealth of the bottom of the sea with micro reserves of flora along the rocky coast and the existence of posydonia prairies all along the coast, considered of community interest, situate us in one the Iberian Peninsula’s best enclaves for scuba diving.
