last spurs of the Sierra Bernia, a geographical marvel that provides
access to the northernmost towns of Alicante's Marina district. lt
is an authentic tourist site, with a coastline boasting sandy
beaches and cliff faces in some areas, also the salt sea give to the
town a special flavor.

salting factory from Roman times.

afternoon fish auction draws near.

some of the fresh local shellfish.
