Dénia reveals its charms

On 13th December, Dénia will be organising a traditional pilgrimage to the hermitage of Santa Lucía, where every year the Porrat is set up, a market selling traditional products and sweets.
Kill two birds with one stone and make the most of your stay in Dénia to discover its incredible monuments, beautiful coastline and, of course, sample its seafaring gastronomy. Why not begin by taking a trip down to its Castle, which has become the unmistakable symbol of the city.

But Dénia is much more: its incredible urban layout, the port, El Montgó Nature Park, its beaches and coves will become part of your culture. In the northern part of this city in the area of La Marina Alta you will find the beaches of Les Marines, Punta del Raset, Les Bovetes, Els Molins, L'Almadrava and Les Deveses. To the south, we find La Marineta Casiana followed by the rocky coves of Las Rotas.

From the area surrounding the Castle you can take in the incredible panoramic views of the city and, inside, you can see the tower known as the Torre del Consell, a Christian edifice where the town’s council would meet.
