The beautiful town of Jávea stands in the northeast of the province of Alicante, in the Marina Alta region, somewhat away from the high-speed routes and sheltered by the Montgó massif, to the southeast of such a majestic rocky mass from which, on clear days, you can make out the western profile of the island of Ibiza. There are many interesting places to see in Jávea town and its surroundings. A visit to Jávea must include, at least, some of the following corners:
Church-Fortress of San Bartolomé: It has been a National Artistic Monument since 1931 and constitutes the most emblematic building in the urban center of Jávea, that is, in the center of town. The set dates from the 16th century, although it was built using a work from the 14th century.
Jávea Town Hall: It is located in front of one of the sides of the Church-Fortress of San Bartolomé. The current building dates back to the second half of the 18th century.
Mercado de Abastos: It is located next to the church-fortress and was erected, in the middle of the 20th century, in the place occupied by the old Agustinas Convent. Inside, the beautiful pointed arches that support the roof of the building stand out. If we have the chance, this is one of those special places to visit in Jávea.
