Expert review of Javea old town

A historic stroll through the old town with plenty of caf├ęs to stop at.

A lot of thought (and money) has gone into the restoration of the old town, and most of Javea’s main historic buildings are to be found in its narrow streets. (Archeology Museum, a small Gothic palace, Calle Primicies; fortress-church of San Bartolomé.) The earliest part of the old town, la Vila, was originally a fortress. One of the predominant architectural styles is the Gothic arch with a keystone of tosca (local sandstone), examples of which can be seen on many public buildings, such as the Town Hall and Mercado de Abastos (municipal market). The recently restored Mercado is an excellent example of this sturdy architecture – and not a bad place to sample the local produce and fish direct from the Med.

Expert tips: 
There are some elegant shops scattered around the old town.
You can try a tapas from some of the excellent delis in the municipal market.
