If you live at Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort you know better than anyone that it’s an invigorating experience for all the senses. The weather, landscapes, and beaches together create the perfect combination for the dream life you’ve always hoped for. However, the Costa Blanca in general and Poble Nou de Benitatxell specifically has hidden secrets and delights that you might not be aware of. To discover them, we propose a series of free guided tours offered by the Town Hall during the following months. If you haven’t considered going, think again and take note of the ones that are happening in September!
Take advantage of this month to discover the centre of Poble Nou de Benitatxell with the History and Heritage Route (La Ruta Histórica y de Patrimonio), which takes place every Friday at 6:00 pm and offers you a glimpse into the history, culture, and gastronomy of the town. The route begins with a guided visit of the Santa María Magdalena church and continues along the “El Portalet” old wall and the Jaume Llobell chapel. The second part of the route focuses on traditional architecture with a visit to the “riuaus” or raisin drying facilities and takes you through the Pous de I’Abiar, the Cova de las Bruixes and ends by contemplating the beautiful landscape of the vineyards. Undoubtedly, this route is the perfect opportunity to better understand the Iberian, Roman, and Muslim past of the town.
On the other hand, the Cliffs’ Route (La Ruta de los Acantilados) offers you a guided tour along the coast next to the cliffs until you reach Cala Llebeig. Thanks to this visit, you can get to know the hidden stories behind the places where smugglers, fishermen, and farmers lived and gathered and collected experiences in this part of the Costa Blanca. Bear in mind that the trail is not an easy one, and runs through cliffs, ravines, and the Cala Moraig fault. If you are interested, the visit takes place every Thursday in September at 5:30 pm.
In addition to these routes, considering Benitatxell’s desire to promote its historical and cultural heritage, the town is organizing another nocturnal route, with the title “Between witches and bandits,” in Spanish, “Entre brujas y bandoleros.” The local historian Pepe Cano was responsible for creating this tour that turned out to be a big success by bringing together more than 100 neighbors and tourists.
