Luxury Properties: Houses, Villas & Flats for sale in Denia, Spain
Denia is the capital of the administrative district (comarca) of Marina Alta.
Denia is already recorded as a Roman port town in the first century BC and the name has survived for more than two millennia. A lively town centre with lovely shops and restaurants and many interesting nightclubs with live music find an international audience year-round. Above everything stands the eleventh-century castle built by the Moors on Roman foundations.
Tourists appreciate the 20 km of sandy beaches, some still with natural dunes, which become a rockier coast near the Las Rotas neighbourhood. Hikers love the nature reserve on Montgo mountain. A modern marina with more than 400 berths and the prestigious Real Club Náutico organises annual national and international competitions.
The city is a popular tourist destination especially for Spaniards and many northern Europeans, who have settled in the surrounding residential developments.
