costa blanca - spain
The sunny Calpe is characterized by the well-known conical cliff Peñón
de Ifach that dominates the landscape, the mild climate, extensive
beaches, long boulevards with palm trees, picturesque streets where you
can go for a stroll, various bars and many restaurants. This all makes
Calpe a delightful destination in both summer and winter. The
surroundings are hilly and in the village you will find museums, narrow
streets and several squares.
During the Middle Ages, the area around Calpe consisted of small communities spread over several villages. Christians and Muslims lived here together in peace but were constantly under fire from pirates. In the 18th century the pirates were expelled and they were no longer a threat, that´s when they could begin with the reconstruction of the city as we know it today.
