Discover Calpe/Calp – Historic town

Calpe, Calp is a town which is full of history and culture. Its strategic location on the coast has attracted many voyagers and settlers throughout history. Remains of Iberian tribes were discovered around the skirts of the Rock of Ifach. Later, the Romans founded a prosperous colony on the coastal plain whose main activity was commerce in dried, salted fish. During the Medieval period, the farming population was spread out in a number of independent settlements. Christians and Moors lived peacefully for a time, but the local population suffered continual attacks by pirates during the 14th to the 17th centuries. Calpe, Calp entered a period of redevelopment during the 18th century, consolidating the town in the 19th century and laying the foundations for its current prosperity as a major attraction for both national and international tourism. In the ancient town center, next to the Moorish quarter (Arrabal) we can see the group of monuments comprising the Torreo de la peça, the Town Walls and the church known as the IglesiaVieja, the sole surviving example of Mudejar-Gothic architecture in the land of Valencia. Further more there is the Moli Tower and the remains of an ancient Roman which have recently been found, once forming part of the fish factory known as the Queen’s Bath (Banys de la Reina).
