LOCATION.- Alcalб de Xivert is situated in the NE of the province
of Castellуn, 51 kilometres away from Castellуn de la Plana. One
of its most conspicuous features is the proximity between sea and
mountain, and among its main attractions we can mention its high
bell tower, in the town centre, and the Las Fuentes area, on the
coastal line. The surrounding mountains offer a superb view of
the 10-kilometre stretch of beaches and coves, against the
incomparable background of the Serra d’Irta natural environment.
It is a rich landscape which offers unending contrasts.
Alcossebre has its origins in a small medieval nucleus of Arab
origin, which was later on populated by fishermen, and which is
now part of Alcalб de Xivert. Alcossebre belongs to the El Baix
Maestrat region, where we can find towns like Benicarlу,
Peснscola or Vinarтs, as well as Cabanes, Oropesa, the walled
city of Morella, or visit the cave paintings in La Valltorta,
which was declared Humankind’s Heritage by UNESCO.
