At Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort, the benefits you will enjoy include not just a house with every luxury imaginable and the privilege of being close to nature with views of the sea, but a huge variety of events which seek to bring people together and recover the traditions of the area.

If you love nature and ecological products, get out your calendar and draw a big circle around the third Saturday of every month for the Mercat de la Llorença.  Over the next few months, it will be taking place on the 15th September, 20th October, 17th November, and 15th December. It will run from 10am to 2pm and be held in Market Square in Poble Nou de Benitatxell.

This fabulous market, created by the Department of Agriculture of Poble Nou de Benitatxell, aims to offer inhabitants and visitors in the municipality a place where they can buy high quality ecological products such as mountain honey, organic vegetables, and even artisanal beers.

The name of the event, “Mercat de la Llorença”, is not just a reference to the massif where Poble Nou de Benitatxell is found, it is also a female name. In this way, therefore, the market seeks to support farmers and artisans in the area while also paying tribute to the role of rural women. It is for this reason that an image of a woman was chosen to promote the market, and a story was even made up about her. In this story, it is said that a woman named Llorença was born in the massif which shares her name, and that she loved the earth.
