Jávea Pueblo

Today we have come back to Jávea old town, this time with a charged battery in the camera!

Jávea old town is steeped in history. It is situated a mile or so inland because in days of old the inhabitants of Jávea feared the incursions of marauding pirates. The old town hasn’t changed much over the centuries and has retained many traditionally built houses around its typical Spanish squares.

The narrow streets are lined with whitewashed buildings with late gothic architectural features, such as tosca sandstone porticoes, gothic bay windows and wrought iron balconies.

The church of San Bartolomé (Iglesia de San Bartolomé), which dominates the church square (Plaza de la Iglesia), is rich in medieval history dating back to the 15th century.

By the side of the church lies a beautiful building which houses the local indoor market where you can buy local fresh produce daily, with its stalls full of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish from the region.
