Dénia: lively metropolis with Mediterranean flair

With its picturesque old town and fashionable harbour, Dénia is not only popular with emigrants

The beautiful coastal town of Dénia is located in a picturesque bay at the foot of the mighty Mountain Range of Montgo. In the middle of this bay, surrounded by palm trees, is the port of Dénia. Despite its importance, it has retained the ambience of a typical Mediterranean fishing port. From there, ferries depart for the Balearic Islands –   Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca.

On a hill above the harbour is the   medieval fortress “El Castillo”, which is 11. and 12th century and later expanded. From the towers of the castle you have a magnificent view of the coast.

Especially during the summer season, concerts take place regularly in the castle. On the same hill there was already an ancient Roman settlement “Diannium”. The remains of fortresses and houses that were found can be seen in the Archaeological Museum in the castle. Other exhibits date back to the Old Iberian and Moorish times.

Significant trading venue

Surrounded by “El Castillo” is   the old town of Dénia with narrow and picturesque street. Many beautiful buildings are a reminder that Dénia became a trading place towards the end of the 19th century. Thanks to the toy industry, Dénia has prospered, and particularly beautiful exhibits can be seen in the Toy Museum.

Near the port is the “Baix la Mar” district with its traditional fishing houses and picturesque squares and alleys. There you can enjoy the excellent seafood of Dénia. The “Gambas Rojas” (red shrimps) are very well known. Another specialty is the sweet wine “Mistela”, which is drunk as an aperitif or for dessert.

Leisure activities

Dénia has 16 kilometres of fine sandy beaches, which have been awarded the Blue Flag by the EU. In the north “Area de Les Marines” and in the south “Marineta Casiana”. Following the latter, there is a rocky area, which is particularly popular with divers and snorkelers because of its rich underwater   world.

Dénia and its surroundings offer many leisure activities. Hikers, athletes and those interested in culture will get their money’s worth there.
