In Calpe you can see remnants of different civilizations while exploring its typical seaside streets.

 

 

Look at archaeological artifacts from the Bronze Age and Iberian era in the Museo de Historia de Calpe and learn more about the Roman civilization at Baños de la Reina, one of the most important archaeological sites of its kind in all of Roman Hispania. Due to its importance and wealth, the Pobla Medieval de Ifach also has a special representation within the museum.

 

 

In the old town, you can view the remnants of the wall that protected Calpe from Moorish attacks, as well as the Torreó de la Peça, a tower that once contained an artillery piece and now houses the Museo del Coleccionismo. Don’t forget to visit the Iglesia Antigua, an old Gothic- and Mudejar-style church that was constructed in the 15th century atop an old chapel from the Christian conquest.

 

Forat de la Mar, a breach in the wall that opened when the pirate threat ceased, the outskirts of town, the Hermitage of San Salvador, and the panoramic view of the architectural site designed by famous Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill at the end of the 20th century are other sites you cannot miss.

 

 

The old town hall, now used as an exposition hall, stands near the site occupied by the historic gate, an old entrance to the walled enclosure, popularly known as El Portalet.
