Explore ancient churches and monasteries, interesting museums, and stroll the streets of old towns

The history surround the Costa Blanca is ancient and fascinating. In 711, the area was under Moorish rule, which lasted nearly four hundred years. During this time, the orange, peach, and almond groves for which the region is now famous were planted, and the gorgeous hillside terraces along the coast were developed. Around 1248 the Moors were forced out by James I of Aragon and over a century of piracy along the Mediterranean coast ensued. It wasn't until 1812 that the region of Alicante was officially established. After the Spanish civil war from 1936 to 1939, a period of peace ensued and it was then that tourism began to grow. The region had become a huge tourist attraction by the 1970s, and today Costa Blanca lures millions of visitors per year.

There are a multitude of options for visitors who wish to dive deeper into Costa Blanca's history. Those on the top of the list include:

-The Castle of Santa Bárbara: This beautiful castle is strategically situated atop the Monte Benacantil hill. In 1248, Prince (and later King) Alfonso reclaimed the fortress from Moorish rule on the feast day of Saint Barbara, explaining where the name of the castle derived. In 1963 the castle was renovated and opened to the public. The spectacular views of Alicante Bay lure tourists by the thousands year after year. Not only the views are intriguing; the attached museum houses artefacts from the Bronze Age, Roman ruins, and various remains from the fortress as it originally stood in the late ninth century. For those who would rather not walk their way up the hill, there are two lifts that spare a hike of one hundred and sixty six metres! A round trip fare costs approximately 2.50 Euros, and the castle is open year round. A great excursion for all kinds of travellers!

-The Archaeological Museum of Alicante or Marq: Explore Alicante's history. With exhibits and artefacts delving into over 100,000 years of history, this interactive museum is well worth a visit. A new and modern museum, the Marq was constructed out of an old hospital and was designated the European Museum of the Year in 2004. There are several galleries within the complex that have permanent exhibits dedicated to the prehistoric age, the Roman influence, Iberian culture, the Middle Ages, and modern Alicante. There are always rotating and temporary exhibits, making the Marq a destination for locals as well as tourists. The museum is open year round, and is also kid-friendly.

-Javea Old Town and San Bartolome Church: Spend a few hours strolling through the gorgeous old town in Javea. The city centre has stunning examples of Gothic architecture, including the church of San Bartolome. This 14th century church was designed by the Spanish architect Domingo Urteaga and was built just as much for worship as for protection. Be sure to venture to the bell tower for a breathtaking view. Explore the food market with loads of fresh fish as well as local fruits and vegetables. The original city walls were torn town around 1870, but parts have been replicated, adding to the charm and ancient feel of the city centre.

No matter which part of Costa Blanca you choose to stay in, a trip back in time is never far away.

On the approach to the property you are greeted by a large white villa situated at the end of the road in a very quiet area. Things are made a lot easier by following the comprehensive information pack provided by Tricia. This property is really secure and safe and entered by a large slideable metal gate onto a private drive, we arrived in the dark things were made easier by the automatic security lighting. On the outside there are numerous immaculatly presented terraces, with furniture, bordered by well presented private gardens, some with stunning views across the valley towards Murla, even before entertering the apartment (ground floor of the villa) you already have the wow factor. When we arrived and entered, the apartment was spotless and we were able to make a drink from the provided milk/tea/coffee etc and there was even a bottle of fizz in the fridge. Every room is well equipped to a high standard with good quality items. Throughout our stay we were short of nothing. Two things that help make it home from home are the free sat tv with all british channels and the wifi which seemed to be a good speed. The pool was fabulous but at this time of year was too cold to use which was a shame. There is a lovely restaurant within walking distance, a three course meal for two with wine 40 Euros, a couple of other towns nearby with restaurants Orba or Xalo. We would definitely return to this beautiful, peaceful apartment and is a relaxing break for a couple. Can’t find one negative comment. Thanks Tricia and Lol Karen an Dave xx

We also really enjoyed the fact we were right next to the national park and mountain with the path leading to the top starting 50m from the gate. All in all we had a great time and if possible would like to come again. William and Ruth
