Denia

Located right in the north of the Costa Blanca region of Spain is the busy and popular coastal town of Denia. Famous for its fine sandy beaches, its 11th Century castle and its many fiestas, Denia has long been a destination for tourists, holidaymakers and sun lovers. Well known for its fine harbour, Denia is an important ferry port with regular trips to the Balearic Islands (Ibiza is just two hours away by ferry). Up until the tourism explosion of the 1960’s Denia was no more than a small fishing town, relying for its existence on fishing, agriculture and a small toy making industry. In recent years the town has expanded rapidly to cater for the large influx of tourists and the increasing demand for coastal holiday homes by rich Spanish and North Europeans. Denia still has a large fishing fleet and a busy fish market is held every day in the port.

LAWYER IN SPAIN

MARIANO RAJOY

Spain’s prime minister dismissed doubts over the current health of Spanish lenders, and argued that the country’s banks had already revealed the extent of their troubles in a “complete striptease” of the sector. “I am absolutely convinced that Spanish financial institutions will not require any more funds than were given already,” he told theFinancial Times.

Spain was forced to seek a bank bail-out of up to €100bn from the EU last June. A later audit revealed that the country’s lenders would need a combined capital injection of almost €60bn.

Mr Rajoy described a “need for growth” in the 17-nation bloc, and called for Germany and other creditor nations to lead the way. “Those who are able to implement growth policies should do it,” he said.

Peralada is an important fortified medieval town with several noteworthy buildings and a perfectly intact Roman bridge. The impressive castle, for many centuries the residence of the Rocaberti family, has a beautiful park featuring a small lake with swans.

The crenalated walls are fourteenth-century in origin, but the Renaissance palace has been added to over the years, and houses a good collection of old Flemish carpets and an 80,000-volume library, part of which is open to the public. Tomas de Rocaberti, count of Perelada and up to then Spanish Ambassador in Paris, created the library in the year 1888.

He and his brother Antoni de Rocaberti, count of Zavella, also maintained a school for theatre and music. This wonderful period ended too soon, however, with the death of the two brothers at the end of the 19th century. They did not leave any descendants.

A sharp lookout was kept and signals sent out in the event of a raid …whereupon the townsfolk would gather inside the walls.. Local fisherman paid “tribute” (known as “castellatge of peix”) to the owner of the castle and thus ensured their defence.

Manilva Sunset

Manilva has previously been both a Roman and a Moorish settlement however the current town dates back to the mid-16 century when King Charles ordered the building of a watch tower to warn of attacks from the Barbary pirates who were persistent in tormenting the southern coast of Spain. By the end of the century a small community had collected around the tower and was located within the Municipality of Casares in 1976 it was given its autonomy and own Villa status. It has remained mainly Spanish in character and atmosphere, as most of the English and other sizeable nationalities prefer to be on the coast (approx 2 km away) , it therefore still recognises the siesta period where time seems to stand still. The largest building, the Iglesia de Santa Ana, replaced the original church in the 18 century after its predecessor was destroyed by an earthquake.
