Forat de la Mar and Arrabal

← Return

After the danger of pirates ceased, the residents of Calpe opened breaches in some side streets that were closed by the 18th century walls. From here you can access the suburb, with San Roque, Puchalt and Pescadores being the most picturesque streets.

 

 

 

Fishing captains used to gather next to "Forat de la Mar" each morning to go to the sea, since they could view the sea conditions from there and accordingly decide whether or not they could fish.

The contemporary "Plaza dels Mariners" owes its name to the "Portal de la Mar". Located at one end of the plaza, the gate was the place where residents accessed the sea from their homes.
