Location & area

Calpe is a delightful, friendly fishing village situated in the middle of Spain's Costa Blanca, nestling on a gently rising hillside at one end of the broad sweep of a sandy bay it overlooks the most outstanding landmark of this coast the towering Penon de Ifach jutting out into the sea over 1000 ft.



In contrast to the larger commercialised resorts, the village of Calpe with its narrow winding streets, traditional Spanish architecture and street markets generates an atmosphere of friendship and relaxation, a village where after only a few days you seem to know and greet everyone.



Calpe will surprise you with its daring contrasts, where modern buildings and wide avenues harmonize with an ancient fishing village, where locals are proud of their past, yet welcome tourists and visitors with warm - hearted hospitality.




History

Calpe is a town which is full of history and culture. Its strategic location on the coast has attracted many voyagers and settlers troughout history. Remains of Iberian tribes were discovered arround the skirts of the Rock of Ifach. Later, the Romans founded a prosperous colony on the coastal plain whose main activity was commerce in dried, salted fish. During the Medieval period, the farming population was spread out in a number of independent settlements. Christians and Moors lived pacefully for a time, but the local population later suffered continual attacks by pirates during the 14th to the 17th centuries. Once the threat of pirate attacks abated, Calpe entered a period of redevelopment during the 18th century, consulidating the town in the 19th century and laying the foundation for is current prosperity, as a major attraction for both national and international tourism.




Scenery

The municipal district extends along the gently - curving bay whose northern edge is marked by the impressive Rock of Ifach, an unmistakable sight on the Costa Blanca. The Rock has been turned into a Nature Park and provides shelter for a variety of plants, such as the rockrose, tree germander and the ifach campion. The rock walls are used for nesting by many species of birds, including the peregrine falcon and a large colony of sea gulls. This immense rock towering to 332 m, juts out into the sea to the punta de carallot. The summit can be reached via a pathway tunnelled through solid rock, from which you can enjoy a marvellous panorama of the coastline, with the island of Ibiza being visible on a clear day.



Visits to the Park are regulated, but you can always enter the Nature Room containing exhibits, audiovisuals and information on the Nature Park. Located at the foot of the Rock are the salts flats used in Roman times, now providing an important habitat for numerous migratory birds ( flamingos,herons,etc.).



The coastline includes the cliffs of Ifach, Toix and La Mancanera, the coves of Raco and the extensive sandy beaches of La Fossa ( Levante ), Arenal Bol and La Calaga. Further inland, the mountains of cometa, Olta, Mascarat and El Collao, interspersed with streams and ravines, blending with croplands to form a picturesque Landscape.
