Our Day Enjoying Denia’s Historic Center

Our Day Enjoying Denia’s Historic Center, Denia, Spain (B)

Our day enjoying Denia’s Historic Center, was all about wandering the streets slowly. We took our time, even though we were starting to get very hungry. Because, have you ever been so taken with everything you’re seeing that you almost forget about those growls coming from your stomach? As we walked through Denia in search of our lunch destination, it was like that for us. Our friend Amparo kept having to stop and wait for us to take pictures and especially for me (Amalia) to catch up after gazing with mouth open at glimpses here and there that I just loved! From just one day enjoying Denia’s Historic Center, we came to feel that one of Denia’s greatest charms is its streets and architecture that have been maintained in that truly endearing Spanish village style.

Amparo led us a way that allowed us to see the very heart of Denia and its historical center. From the Hotel Nou Romà we walked along one of the main pedestrian paseos that are closed to cars – Carrer de Loreto. Lined with restaurants and little shops, it ends at Placa de la Constitucio (the name in Valencian Language) and where the back of the castle (Castelle de Denia) and its entrance are located. Passing through the Placa de la Constitucio, we enjoyed the outdoor marble flooring, flowering trees, and beautiful town hall (theAyuntamiento) and the quaint church, Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion. Just past it, we ended up on the west side of the castle, which is where we discovered the large pedestrian tunnel that goes under the castle and through the hill, for crossing easily from one side of Denia’s historic center, to the other. Here is also where the popular Carrer de la Mar is, which we took down to the sea and the Marina el Portet de Denia. This is one of two marinas that Denia has. ......
