Situated within the province of Alicante, Costa Blanca, right in the middle of Valencia and Tarragona, with a backdrop of the Montgo National Park Mountains. The castle ruins, Castillo de Denia, are magnificent and have incredible views looking out over the marina and promenade. The Moors built it in the 11th century right on top of the old foundations from the Roman City of Diannium. There are many monuments that are worth visiting, two of which being the 18th century church and the 17th century dockyards.

If you’re feeling fit, you could climb the 750m mountain Montgo, and admire the views of the city and port below. There is a toy museum, which pays homage to Denia’s rich history in toy making and an ethnological museum, which has displays on the local life and history. The typical diet is Mediterranean, with seafood, rabbit and lamb featuring prominently. The Denia red prawn is famous for its vibrant colour and delicious taste. For dessert, don’t miss out on the delicious local Jijona (nougat) ice cream, made with almonds from the region.
