Discover Vila Joiosa
Villajoyosa, is a beautiful fishing village known for its facade of brightly coloured houses that were once home to its fishermen and which, together with its promenade, form one of the most beautiful and photographed postcards of the Costa Blanca. La Vila has one of the best-preserved historic quarters on the Valencian coast, the result of a commercial and maritime city that has shaped its particular architecture.
Capital of the Marina Baixa, La Vila Joiosa, also known as “La Vila“, begins to recognise the peaks of the Aitana and Puig Campana mountain ranges, a barrier that protects the area from the north winds and allows you to enjoy very pleasant temperatures all year round, as well as numerous hiking routes for mountain lovers.
For those who want to escape the hectic and crowded tourist centres, this small town is the ideal place. In the beautiful old town, bathed by the waters of the river Amadorio, stands the church-fortress of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, in late Levantine Gothic style, surrounded by its colourful houses, symbol of this municipality; a tradition from ancient times, when the fishermen arrived at the port and wanted to quickly recognise their home. A colourful postcard that has survived to the present day, thanks to its inhabitants who have known how to preserve it and promote it for tourism.
