All about Benissa

All about Benissa

Benissa is the oldest and prettiest of the inland towns of the area. In the late 1980s and 1990s the local authorities started to rescue the historical part of the town from gradual decay. They did a magnificent job restoring the town’s splendid 17th and 18th century town houses, so taking a stroll around Benissa’s perfectly conserved Historic Centre is a true pleasure. Ironwork balconies and heraldic shields decorate the historic buildings that line the narrow streets of the town. The parish church which is dedicated to Puríssima Xiqueta, the Town Hall, the old Council rooms, the house of Juan Vines and the Franciscan Monastery are just a few of the historic buildings which are worth a look.

Although Benissa is located inland, it also has 4 kilometres of beautiful coastline. The Cala de la Fustera is the best to visit as it has the largest car park! The small beach is sandwich between cliffs along which are two great coastal walking paths.

A trip to Benissa today – normally we walk the 2km up from the tram station but as the line is closed between Calpe and Denia the bus dropped us in the town itself which was a bonus!! Spent ages walking round all the little back streets then found a bar (Jamaica) near the bus stop where we got a lovely tuna and onion empanada then apple tart and cream!! It was so peaceful there and the locals we met all smiled and said good morning! It was also cooler than Benidorm so very pleasant walking around
