LOCATION.- Calpe is a city full of history. Its privileged
geographical situation and its warm climate have made it possible
that numerous civilizations have settled in the town of the Rock
of Ifach since times immemorial.
63 kilometres away from Alicante, and under the attentive gaze of
the highest cliff on the Mediterranean, the Peсуn de Ifach, Calpe
has grown on both sides of the Great Rock, with finely sandy
beaches and transparent waters. Its fishing port is full of
vitality, where the sea products are received daily.
One of the most popular visits is to the Peсуn de Ifach Natural
Park; you can also walk along the sea front promenades; or
discover the archaeological remains of the Roman villa and the
Baсos de la Reina Roman baths; or admire architect Ricardo
Bofill’s buildings and the spectacular landscapes you can see
from La Manzanera and the Morro de Toix; or you can go trekking
on the Oltа mountains. From Calpe, you can also go on excursions
to other places of tourist interest on and off the coast.

Its cultural programme includes art exhibitions, theatre
performances, concerts, films, etc.
