Benissa - Raco de Galeno
Costa Blanca North
Benissa is the oldest and prettiest of the inland towns of the area. In the late 1980s and 1990s the local authorities started to rescue the historical part of the town from gradual decay. They did a magnificent job restoring the town’s splendid 17th and 18th century town houses, so taking a stroll around Benissa’s perfectly conserved Historic Centre is a true pleasure. Ironwork balconies and heraldic shields decorate the historic buildings that line the narrow streets of the town. The parish church, which is dedicated to Puríssima Xiqueta, the Town Hall, the old Council rooms, the house of Juan Vines and the Franciscan Monastery are just a few of the historic buildings which are worth a look.
Although Benissa is located inland, it also has 4 kilometres of beautiful coastline. The Cala de la Fustera bay is the best to visit as it has the largest car park! The small beach is sandwiched between cliffs along which are two great coastal walking paths.
