The unique lie of Javea depends of the long historiy, the sailors of the past and present. A large harbour, many fishing boats and the fish sellery in the harbour are testimonies of the historic value. Javea keeps his typical charcter of a fishingvillage from the past. Inside the town center with his romantic small streets and places the life seems to stand still.
Old houses facing the picture of Javea. Ugly concrete buildings (seen in other villages at the Costa Blanca) you will not find there. Javea gives a demonstration of the middleage past in every corner of the old town. Gotic windows on white fasades are reflecting a wealthy impression in the street mase and the small romantic places.
The gotic church San Bartolomé and Iglesia Santa Maria de Loreto needs to be seen. Near the church in a gotic palace inside the archelogical and ethnological museum you can study the history of the town. Javea possess a lot of restaurants, offering the typical meals of the country beside the international feed. We recommend the very famous Tapeo, beloved by the spanish people. Those well tasting small “Tapas” will be served step by step. That experience you only will find in Spain.
