A stroll in the old town

Jávea preserves its peculiar medieval style with narrow streets dotted with white facades, arched portals and Gothic windows. Walking around the old town you can find “San Bartolomé” church (s. XIV-XVI) that is an example of Spanish Elizabethan Gothic architecture,  the “Palau de Sapena” which is the building that hosts the town hall (s. XVIII), the archaeological and ethnographic  museum “Soler Blasco” or the “Abastos” Municipal market. Even if the most charming thing about the old town, is to wander around through its streets and stop for a drink in one of the several tapas bars.

A lot of places boast for sunsets in Spain but only Jávea can boast about being the first Spanish city to see the sun and that’s because the “Cabo de la Nau” is the most easterly point of the country. Watching the sun that rises over the sea is a magical moment. A sun that also shines more than 300 days a year here!
