Castle of Dénia

Located on a gentle hill in the heart of the city, its physiognomy completes and difines the topofraphy of a municipality whose origin dates back to the antique Classical Antiquity.

From the fortress you can see the town centre, the Montgó Natural Park to the Reserve Marine del Cap de Sant Antoni and the Gulf of Valencia.

Muslim Andalusian (X & XI c.), its history is closely linked to the development of Dénia.

The ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM is located in the uppert part of the Castle.
