Calpe Tourism

Calpe is an historic town and popular holiday resort located on Spain's Costa Blanca. As well as two sandy beaches, this former fishing village is also known for the Penon de Ifach, a giant limestone rock which appears to rise out of the sea. 

There are several attractions within the old part of Calpe, including the church dating from the 15th century, and the Museum of Archaeology which contains a variety of Roman relics. Like many towns on the Costa Blanca, Calpe hosts several fiestas throughout the year, most notably the Moors and Christians Festival each September. Historic costumes worn during these celebrations are on display in the Festival Museum. 

The area around the Penon de Ifach has been a nature reserve since 1987. Several rare bird species inhabit the reserve, including the Audouin's Gull and marine raven. At the base of the Penon are salt flats which attract flamingoes and other waders. There was also a Roman factory here that produced dried fish. 

It's possible to climb to the summit of the rock, but you should wear sensible footwear and take plenty of water. The views from the summit, which is around 330 metres above sea level, are terrific.
