A stroll down a tree-lined avenue and onto the prom.

Calle Marques del Campo is Dénia’s fashionable main shopping street, where promenaders and coffee-takers find shade under the trees that form an arch for almost its full length. From the Glorieta de Pais Valencia with its fountain and shaded arbour you can look straight down to the port. Many of the buildings are original Modernista in style, (the delightful mix of Victorian and Art Deco that is peculiar to Spain), and if you nip in to El Comercio (no. 17), now a restaurant but once a hostel, with its original metal balconies and louvered doors, you can get an idea of this early 20th century design style. (Despite the mock Barvarian restoration – or barbarian might be a better description). The upper half of the street is almost elbow to elbow cafés and restaurants on the left-hand side, but there are also plenty of select shops. The bottom end, where it reaches the port, is a pleasant evening stroll, and in summer months there are stalls selling jewellery, clothing and other nick-nacks.

Most of the restaurants serve lunch on the terrace, which is a delight under the shady trees.
