The castle of Denia is located on the top of a small hill that dominates the entire city and the port of Denia, Spain. This place is one of the main attractions of the city.
The castle of Denia offers one of the best ways to learn and understand our history, which dates back to the Iberian era.

Over time, the city has witnessed several conquests. Different types of civilizations settled in the old town and influenced their culture, making Denia the city as we know it now.

Vistas desde El Castillo de Dénia

During the time of the Roman Empire, the port of Denia was already an important point for maritime routes, because from here they sailed ships with Iberian products to Rome. With the arrival of the Muslims, they would soon realize the strategic importance of the area and built a fortress in an ancient Roman settlement on top of the mountain to protect the entrance of the harbor.

At that time, the city grew very fast commercially and economically and Denia became the maritime reference center in the Mediterranean. The castle was originally built by Muslim Arabs who ruled Denia from the 8th to the 13th century. The Arab influence can be breathed in the kitchen and several other features of the city and the dianenses. The name “Denia” comes from “Daniyah”, which means “lowland” in Arabic.

However, the castle collapsed after the Arab occupation in Spain and saw its peak again in the 19th century when it was rebuilt by the French. Today the castle is an important tourist center that attracts people from all over the world for its views, historical importance, and it’s architecture.
