Fancy seeing two of the most beautiful and historical spots in Valencia? Then be sure to join us this Sunday as Soy Erasmus visits Calpe and Jávea! In case you need more convincing, here's 5 fun facts about these 2 amazing destinations...
1. Calpe’s Peñon de Ifach stands at 332 metres tall.
This calcareous rock will take you a good hour to hike, but when you get to the top it provides amazing views of the historical town and the turquoise sea.
2. The Calpe region has been declared a Nature Reserve.
The town has received this status due to its botanical and faunal diversity as well as its 11km of coastline.
3. The old walls of Calpe were erected in the 15th century.
These walls border the historic quarter and were built to defend the city against pirates.
4. Jávea boasts 20km of beaches and coves.
From Cape Nao to Granadella Cove, Jávea is ideal to enjoy the sun, the sea and water sports.
5. Remains discovered in the Cova Forada in Jávea date back 30,000 years.
The caves along the coast of Jávea are filled with history, as well as coarse stone that has been extracted for construction.
