Jávea Jávea

Jávea is a coastal town situated behind a wide bay and sheltered between two rocky headlands; the town has become a very popular small seaside resort and market town. It was once a walled town to protect the inhabitants from pirates and there is still evidence of these fortifications.

The Sant Bartomeu church dating back to the 14th century is an example of a fortification. It was built in Toscan sandstone hewn from rocks at the coast. The church is a national historic monument and it is a frequent setting for classical music concerts due to the perfect acoustics of the vaulted ceiling.

Artifacts from Iberian and Roman times and the Middle Ages are displayed in the Museu Arqueològic i Etnogràfic based in the 17th century old Casa Palacio of Antoni Banyuls. The Casa Palacio is considered one of the finest examples of Jávea’s civil architecture. Another building in Toscan sandstone is the Capella de Santa Anna, a small gothic building.

In the old town centre of Jávea is a network of narrow streets, full of whitewashed and sandstone houses, wrought iron lattices and mobila (aged pine wood). The 15th century Palau dels Sapena located in Plaça de l’Església is a fine example of gothic style, with three-centred arches in the gallery and twin trefoil arch windows.

Noteworthy is the church of Mare de Déu de Loreto in the harbour district. The church built in 1963 has a shape of an oval boat keel, to resemble a fishing vessel bursting through the waves.

Platja de l'Arenal is the beach that flanks the promenade. During summer evenings there are always market stalls. There are numerous bars and restaurants at the promenade, but if your budget is not that great, it is better to find cheaper options in restaurants set back from the beach.

There are not that many hotels in Jávea, but a great choice of villas and apartments. Plenty of campsites you will find in the area El Naranjal just 5 minutes from the beach.

The Montgó Natural Park is situated between Jávea and Dénia. The summit of Mount Montgó is 753 m high. The summit of Montgó is the second highest peak so close to the sea in the Mediterranean; on a clear day the island of Ibiza can be seen.
