The most outstanding of Benissa
The historic center of Benissa has a beautiful architecture. We could say its a museum itself made up of incredible buildings, cobbled streets and centuries-old walls, Moorish lattices, heraldic shields and houses, that show the passage of history since the Middle Ages. Here we must highlight the Cathedral of the Marina Alta, the Trading Exchange, an old building where the Ethnographic Museum is located. In the surroundings, the old jail, the square of the portal and the whole medieval center of Benissa.
Its 4 kms. of coast, between surprising cliffs, contains beautiful coves of crystalline water like Cove and beach the Fustera, Cala Llovella, Cala Pinets, L'Advocat or the Cala Baladrar.
This population, besides the coast, has a marvelous landscape, which is covered by organized hiking routes, highlighting the Sierra de Bernia, Ottà, Mallà verda and La Solana.
When visiting Benissa you can not miss the markets, discover their rich flavors, where the products of the sea and the countryside stand out in an exquisite combination of traditional dishes.
