Calpe is a beautiful municipality located north of the province of Alicante, in the Comarca de la Marina Alta. Calpe is a city located under the watchful eye of the Peñon de Ifach, a rocky formation of 320 m of height that emerges stunningly from the sea, which during centuries has exerted a great influence on all the civilizations that have lived on these lands.
Old Town. One of the main places you have to visit in Calpe is its old town. Strolling through its narrow-cobbled streets steeped in history is a pleasure. You can visit museums or eat in some of their little bars or terraces enjoying the atmosphere of a typical Mediterranean village.

It is divided into two sections: a simpler section that can be walked quietly as a family stroll, and a second section which is a bit harder to walk.
Baños de la Reina. These are the remains of large buckets dug into the rock during the Roman Empire, where they kept the fish that would later be used to create the famous Roman salting.
