Best for History - Expert review of Denia Castle and Archaeological Museum

The city guardian, the most important symbol of Dénia’s history.

There has been a castle gazing over Dénia since Roman times, but one of the most important periods of its development was during the Moorish occupation of Spain, when the lower part of the castle was used by inhabitants in times of siege. The horseshoe arch at the entrance of the castle is from that period. There are remains of buildings from various ages. The castle was used for defensive purposes until the end of the 19th century, from when the terraces were used for growing grapes for raisins, the town’s main export for over one hundred years. The Governor’s Palace at the top of the castle houses the Archaeological Museum, and shows the evolution of the town from its Iberian origins until the 18th century.

Price advice:
